Depth regeneration of Serpis dock, inlet channel and mouth of the Port of Gandía

These works consisted of dredging the Port of Gandía, including the Serpis dock, inlet channel and port mouth areas.

The usable material dredged pumped ashore to the Daimuz, Guardamar and Piles beaches. Non-usable material was carried to the authorised offshore disposal site.

The use of floating pipes meant that all three beach generations could be completed in a record time (11 days), thereby minimising the impact for users of the beaches and completing the work before the Easter holidays.
