Construction works on the new “Balears Wharf” at Port Tarragona (Costa Daurada, Spain) enter a decisive phase. Over the next 14 months, it is expected to transform the look of Port Tarragona.
The new infrastructure will substantially change the Llevant breakwater area (used for cruise ship docking), as it will have an area of 4 hectares and will be 460 metres long.
The length of the mooring line will be 700 m as it will be possible for ships to dock on both sides of 240 of those 460 m. That is why twice the number of cruise ships will be able to tie up at the same time and that the largest cruise ships in the world will now be able to call at the port of Tarragona.
The building of the wharf, which is at a cost of more than EUR 27 million, officially started on April 17 with the signing of the restatement ceremony. This will take 14 months and has a completion date of mid-2021.
The new infrastructure could be also opened up to solid bulk and multipurpose terminal services.
