Ineco has collaborated with Mauritania’s Government in the development of a Master Plan to expand and build a new fishing quay. 

One of the most productive fishing grounds in the world is found in the territorial waters of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania. However, a lack of infrastructures has historically prevented the country from harnessing this resource in an efficient manner.

Therefore the Government of Mauritania set in motion a master plan to extend the port and build a new fishing wharf, projects which were carried out with the assistance of Ineco.

Contributing to the development of the country

This project, co-funded by the Government of Spain, was developed within the framework of the financial cooperation memorandum signed between the Mauritanian and Spanish governments in favour of upgrading the infrastructures of the Islamic Republic.

The Ineco team was entrusted with the technical assistance for the port, construction of the fishing wharf with an area of 122,000 m² in the southern part of the same and supervision of other works related to the project.

This project to extend the Nouadhibou fishing port is a key element in boosting the fishing sector and making a positive contribution to the country's economy.
