The Project will rehabilitate and expand the capacity of Avatiu port. The Project comprises (i) widening the harbor entrance, (ii) dredging to increase the depth alongside the wharf plus dredging and enlarging the ship turning area, and (iii) reconstructing and realigning the quay and repairing the adjacent wharf deck. The Project will climate-proof the wharf by replacing the existing structure that is extremely vulnerable to wave action and forces with one that is fully resistant to such forces. Additionally, the wharf will be designed such that it can be raised along with the container yard at some future date, should a rising sea level require it. Similarly, the design of the anchorage points for the fendering system will allow the fenders to be set at a higher level if required.
