A contract for repair and reinforcement work on the North Breakwater at Viana do Castelo Port has been awarded to Teixeira Duarte – Engenharia e Construções, S.A. by APDL – Administração dos Portos do Douro, Leixões e Viana do Castelo, S.A. at a ceremony held last Monday at the port.

With a length of 2,170 metres, the North Breakwater – protecting the port of Viana do Castelo – is a structure of gaugeable slopes with a concrete walkway. The contract will have a duration of 12 months and a value of €1,461,619.00, including the reinforcement of the existing slopes and repairs to the concrete pavement along its entire length, damaged by bad weather.

This project is the first of four planned for the rehabilitation of the aforementioned breakwater and is extremely important because it mainly resolves the safety issues of this port infrastructure, which is increasingly important to the country from an economic point of view.
