Project execution period:
1997
Project initiator:
Liepaja Special Economic Zone Authority
Project objective:
improving navigation safety in the port of Liepaja by stopping the entry of sand drift into the Liepāja port basin
Total project costs:
EUR 3.1 million
The reconstruction of the Southern pier of the Liepaja port is the first large-scale infrastructure development project that was carried out in the history of the renewed Port of Liepaja. While taking the port over from the armed forces of the Russian Federation, it was detected that the Southern pier of the post was partly collapsed and did not fulfill its task of protecting the port basin from the influence of wind and waves, and that the suspended drift brought in by the waves freely entered the port basin, thus advancing the congestion of the main fairways of the port Freeport and Winter Harbor basins. Therefore, the reconstruction of the pier was the first necessary port development activity which secured the following dredging of the congested port fairway and port basin.
The reconstruction of the Liepaja port Southern pier was carried out by the Danish company "Per Arsleff". The project was finalized in 1997.
