Brakewaters in Grindavik

Sudurverk made two breakwater-embankments to protect the port of Grindavik. The work began in March 2002 and ended in September 2003. The total volume of rock for the breakwaters was about 180,000 m3. The largest stones were up to 30 tons.

The work was carried out for Grindavik-municipality and the contract value was 1.5 million $. The breakwaters proved to be extremely effective and the situation changed completely in the harbor of Grindavik for the better and greatly improved safety.
