Period: 1999 – 2000

GPO was awarded by the Port Authority of Barcelona with the Detailed Design of the new Southern Breakwater. The new infrastructure is 4,794 m long and it is divided into three segments: the first segment is perpendicular to the shore with a short straight alignment and a curve (2,000 m long). The second segment is parallel to the shore (2,100 m long) and it has a fully straight alignment. Finally, the third segment has also a straight alignment of 694 m to get to the port entrance. Along the project, it was necessary to carry out the analysis for the configuration of the port’s entrance, the maneuverability analysis for vessels up to 400 m in length, internal agitation studies and bidimensional scale models.
