October 18 2011

The Cadiz Bay Port Authority has awarded to Eptisa a new technical assistance project to carry out the control and supervision of the Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) during the works for the "New Container Terminal in Cadiz. Phase I".

The new container terminal will replace the current one located near the passenger terminal and inside the city centre. The new terminal will make it possible to separate the passengers and containers traffic, increase the storage capacity and improve the accessibility by sea and land. It's expected that the project execution will last 46 months divided in two phases.

This new terminal will be located between the East breakwater and Navantia pier No. 5, with a berthing line 1,000 m. long. Also will be filled 38 hectares to create the future esplanade to store the containers.

In this first phase, the works involve the construction of a dock using caissons cubes, a breakwater, and a new esplanade, as well as dredging of the adjoining areas as required to enable vessels to dock and guarantee the access. It's planned to develop in this phase 22 hectares of reclaimed land with 590 metres of dock frontage and a draft of metres.

To achieve these objectives, Eptisa will carry out the following functions, among others:

  • Analyze the results of inspections carried out to the activities under the QAP
  • Check out the suitability of the materials received on site
  • Control the development and the fulfilment of the Inspection Points Program (IPP) and the Materials Control and Testing Program.
  • Create "Non-Conformity Reports" in view of deviations from the objectives established.
