Gij—n Port Authority (APG) is carrying out a large extension to the port, including a new basin seawards of the present port facilities. But the building process can often be hampered because the local wave climate is dominated by swells. To improve the operability of the operation, UTE Dique Torres (Dragados, FCC, SATO, FPS and Alvargonz‡lez Contratas) asked Deltares (formerly Delft Hydraulics) and MARIN to perform model tests and simulations.
