Tanger Med 2 Port

Tanger Med 2 Port

Tanger Med 2 is the expansion of Tanger Med, a multipurpose deep-water sea port located in a few kilometers East from Tangier, in Morocco, facing Gibraltar.

The port expansion aims to increase yearly capacity of the port, the largest in Africa, by 5.2 million containers.

For this large infrastructure project, Dextra supporter contractor Bouygues with a rebar splicing solution for the reinforcement of the caissons.

Dextra supplied its Rolltec solution, which is AFCAB-cerfified, a requirement on this project. Two Rolltec machines were installed to support the threading activities: 360,000 threads in total (180,000 Rolltec couplers).

Couplers were use in the reinforcement of the caisson, which were as tall as 20 to 24 meters. Couplers provided:


  • Temporary openings to solve congestion issues in the reinforcement within the caisson. Rebar couplers allow to create a safe passage for men and equipment during installation phase.
  • Horizontal wall-to-slab connections (from the inside of the caisson perimeter to slab). For this application, couplers were left pending, allowing the slip form to go up.
