Dredging of approach channel and port basin and expansion of wharves of Stylida Port. Design of quays’ foundations.

Prefecture of Pthiotida

Project Description

PROJECT Dredging of approach channel and port basin and expansion of wharves of Stylida Port. Design of quays’ foundations.
OWNER PREFECTURE OF FTHIOTIDA
GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION CONTRACTOR GEOCONSULT Ltd.
DATES OF GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION June 2008 – June 2009

The Port of Stylida consists of a quay approximately 750 m long, which extends along the coast, and a pier perpendicular to the quay, which is approximately 120 m wide and 150 m long. The operational depths of the port basin do not exceed 7.00 m. Due to the small depths of the gulf of Stylida, the approaching vessels follow a navigation channel.

The expansion of Stylida Port includes the following:

  • Expansion of the east quay of the pier over a length of 50 m.
  • Construction of a quay along the head of the pier, which will be 110 m
  • Construction of a quay 116 m long along the west side of the pier.
  • Filling and covering of the pier with concrete at least 20 cm thick for the creation of port land area.
  • Dredging of the port basin up to level –8.00 m in the area of commercial ship maneuvering and up to level –3.50 m in the area of the fishing and touristic boats as well as in the area of the west quay of the pier (estimated dredged area of the port basin 160,000 m2).
  • Construction of 360 m long quays at the eastern part of the port, for accommodating fishing and touristic boats. Promenades will be created behind the quays.

Dredging of the approach channel, of a total area of approximately 82,000 m2), up to elevation -8.00 m and widening of the channel up to 70 m at its bottom level (for accommodating container ships <10.000 DWT).

Drilling 6 on-shore and 7 off-shore exploratory boreholes of 190 m total depth and 6 dynamic penetration tests (DPSH), with the relevant laboratory tests, preparation of a factual and interpretive report and foundation proposals. Geotechnical design of quay’s foundations.
