Strabag is extending and strengthening the container harbour at Port Louis, Mauritius, together with its partner Archirodon Construction (Overseas) Co. SA.

The project is being carried out in four phases to allow the harbour to remain in operation while work is going on.

Phase 1, with a length of 244 m, includes the new berthing quay to be founded into the sea bed on tubular steel piles and sheet piles (combi-wall), the corresponding concrete works, the quay facilities, and the relocation of three container cranes.
