Norman ports ready to conquer the world

[ November 4, 2019   //   ]

Ports of Normandy is entered the final stage of its enlargement programme for the port of Ouistreham outer harbour – the installation of a protective shield fabricated by Manche Industrie Marime (MIM) based in Dieppe. Ports of Normandy president Hervé Morin declared that the cooperative effort “demonstrates the complimentary nature of our two ports”.

The €12 million enlargement programme was launched in 7 January with the installation of a guidance system to allow an increase of the size of ship that can be accommodated inside the locks at Ouistreham from 24 to 27.4 metres in response to global market demand.
