The last Xblocs® are being installed

Calais Port 2015 Xbloc® prefabrication plant moved to another construction site and so left Calais a few months ago after building 16,564 Xblocs® in different sizes.

Part of the current port Eastern platform is presently used as a storage area for these items, pending their gradual implementation behind the seawall as its upper part all along the breakwater is currently being finalized. And the last Xblocs® rows will still have to be laid on the seawall seaside to consolidate the completed work.

A new HITACHI 1200 boosted excavator arrived on site at the beginning of September to carry out this operation.
