Project:New Port and Marina at Mykonos Island
Client:Ministry of Environment Town Planning & Public Works (now: Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport & Networks)
Location:Mykonos, Greece
Date:1995 - ongoing
The project involved the construction of an artificial island 800m long close to the shore with which is connected by a bridge. The island is constructed in water depths of 12m and has a reclaimed area of 60,000sq.m. Along the seaward quaywall of the island, two large cruiserliners can berth, as well as up to six ferries simultaneously. The leeside of the island offers shelter to 300 yachts.

The seaward quaywall is constructed of prefabricated reinforced concrete caissons, each measuring 18.3m in length and 12.30m in height. The leeside quaywall is constructed of prefabricated concrete blocks.

A passenger terminal and various marina facilities are provided, together with extensive parking areas.
Detailed landscaping of the island's surface has taken place.

TRITON has carried out the topographic, bathymetric, hydrographic and geotechnical surveys, the feasibility and environmental studies and the preliminary and detail engineering design. Furthermore, TRITON has been involved in the project's management and technical supervision during the first years of its construction.

The port and the marina are currently in operation accomodating cruiseships and ferries, while the overall project is being extended with infrastructure works implemented along the coastline, where additional yacht berths and facilities are provided.
