The Dover Harbour Western Breakwater was manufactured by Macrete and supplied to Volker Stevin Ltd on behalf of the Port of Dover.
Around 500 individual precast concrete units were delivered on six boat shipments over eight months.
The Port of Dover is the busiest international roll-on roll-off ferry port in the UK, the Port handles £144bn of trade in goods and 33% of the UK’s trade with the EU, supporting businesses across the nation.
Dover is also the UK’s second busiest cruise port, welcoming over 25 cruise lines and 200,000 guests each year, and has a marina and property business primed to benefit from a new waterfront.
With a cargo business handling fresh produce, containers, project cargo, general cargo, grain, and Ro-Ro traffic operating from a state-of-the-art terminal next to the world’s busiest shipping lane and on the quickest sea route to Europe, Dover is building for the future.
Their focus on sustainability is driving them forward, enabling them to keep the Port of Dover at the heart of international trade and tourism, and contributing value as a key gateway, employer, business, and community partner.
