European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA)

COMPLETION DATE

SEPTEMBER 2023

PROJECT VALUE

55,500,000.00 € (vat excl.)

The HUPPINES project addresses studies for the upgrade and extension of the existing windward breakwater and for the installation of a wave energy generation system in the Core maritime port of Heraklion, which is located on the Orient/East-Med Core Network Corridor. It contributes to the increase of safe maritime access by improving basic port infrastructure and to the increase of environmental benefits by deploying wave energy generation on the windward breakwater. The project aims for the first time to provide the development of a new civil engineering design for the installation of the mechanical sub-system (floater and floater arms) on the armouring (Tetrapods & Accropodes) of the breakwater.
