Reconstruction of Klaipeda Northern Breakwater
November 18, 2022 6 min read
In the project ‘Reconstruction of Klaipeda Northern Breakwater’, the entrance of the harbour of Klaipeda was strengthened and renewed. In the course of this construction work, a retaining wall was built underwater at the foot of the breakwater at the narrowest point of the entrance. Through the installation of this wall, it was possible to design a rectangular cross-section between the northern and southern breakwaters, thus achieving a depth independent of the breakwater slope. Main contractor for the project was Depenbrock Ingenieurwasserbau GmbH & Co. from Germany.
