South-West France is a very popular holiday destination. In the picturesque environment of Les Mathes lies the harbour of this small village. The harbour is of high economical interest.
Royal Smals is dredging this special harbour to guarantee nautical depth for fisherman and tourist ships.
This complex project is a challenge because of the strong tides of the Atlantic ocean. Only during high water and five hours after high water it is possible to dredge. This is to prevent the dredged sediment flows back.
Interim research showed that the desired depth was reached everywhere. Our specialists are working very hard to accomplish this challenging project.
