The project required numerous studies to reconcile the respect for the environment, land-use planning and the cultural aspect of Tangier. To unite the port with the city in a limited space, several actions have been carried out:
The environmental integration study resulted in the agreement of the Commission Nationale d’Etude d’Impact (the National Impact Study Commission) (CNEI). A monitoring and control system was applied throughout the implementation phase. It will be maintained for subsequent exploitation. In fact, in order to respect the bioclimatic characteristics of the region, the vegetation system of the converted port will be composed of species specific to the area of Tangier: maritime pines, Pinus Pinea and the Canary Islands palm trees. In addition, the plants already existing in the city of Tangier will be added: araucarias, ficus and carob trees, etc.
The photovoltaic installation is responsible for transforming the solar energy into electrical energy, in the form of a direct current proportional to the solar irradiation captured by the solar generator. This photovoltaic generator will be connected to the GLVP (general low voltage panel) of the transformer substation 20KV / 380V of the client via inverters synchronized with the AMENDIS network. This substation supplies the buildings and installations of the SGPTV. It is connected to AMENDIS’s MT network.
In case where production exceeds internal consumption, the system must allow for the management of the overproduction by controlling the share injected into the Amendis network (Public Electricity Network) from 0% to 100% in order to comply with current and future regulations.
The shade house is 7000 m², covered in the pre-boarding areas and the waiting areas for vehicles and passengers.
