Ævia has rehabilitated the walkway of the loading jetty of the "De Gaulle" lock at the Grand Port Maritime of Dunkirk (59).

Infrastructures Division

The beams of this 7-span walkway were deteriorated, jeopardizing the structure's longevity, and therefore required reinforcement.

This rehabilitation required a specific phasing to not compromise the 160-meter-long structure; following a demolition phase and then reinforcement, our teams reconstructed the beam heels of the walkway using self-compacting concrete while carrying out more traditional concrete repairs.

Our teams worked from the underside using suspended scaffolding, allowing the work to be carried out safely.

Congratulations to our teams for this achievement!

Thank you to the Grand Port Maritime of Dunkirk for their trust!
