MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has signed a contract with French civil engineering construction company Bouygues Travaux Publics, to design, fabricate and install three linkspan facilities in the port of Calais.
In August, the pending decision was already criticized by local politicians from extreme right party Front national. They condemned the fact that the ramps would be built in Poland, and not in the Nord Pas-de-Calais region. They also tried to prove that the floating type of linkspan is less reliable than the actual fixed links. The port authorities argued that the nearby port of Dunkerque successfully uses floating linkspans since 15 years, and with the same berthing frequency as in Calais
