Floating breakwater in Monaco


Floating breakwater structure in Monaco harbour is the largest project of its kind in the world. The structure is also a floating jetty, which extends and protects the existing harbour. The whole structure is so large, that shopping center and parking garage are accounted in the hollow body of the jetty. FDN provided advisory to the engineering companies, which were responsible for the detailed design.
