Tanger-Med Maritime Terminal


Deux millions de passagers et 700.000 camions. C'est le trafic annuel attendu sur le nouveau port de Tanger, au Maroc, après l'ouverture d'un terminal dédiés aux ferries en 2009. La construction de cette infrastructure, dont le coût est évalué à 200 millions de dollars, a été confiée à un consortium réunissant le Français Bouygues, l'Italien Saipem et le Marocain Bymaro. Le projet prévoit la réalisation de deux digues de 1.2 et 1.3 kilomètres, le dragage d'un chenal d'accès de 13 mètres de profondeur, 8 postes et 20 hectares de terre-pleins.

The Radisson Resort & Spa, Tangier



The Rezidor Hotel Group announces a new Radisson Resort & Spa. It is Rezidor’s second resort in the country: In June this year the company has signed the Radisson Resort & Spa, Saïdia (384 rooms and 97 villas; to open in Q3 2010). “Our pipeline in Africa now comprises more than 20 hotels with almost 5,400 rooms in operation and under development”, says Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor. “This emerging region offers a huge potential and remains in our focus.”

Name: The Radisson Resort & Spa, Tangier
Rooms: 155 rooms
Scheduled Opening: Q4 2010


The Radisson Resort & Spa, Tangier will be located on the east end of the Bay of Tangier in the Ghandouri area – spread out over 2.7 hectares and on a slope towards the Mediterranean Sea. Its development is part of “Plan Mada’in”; initiated by the King of Morocco and aiming to reposition and to extend eight existing tourist destinations in the country.

The project is owned and will be developed by Société Hôtelière et Immobilière du Nord, a subsidiary of the Luxembourg based Aerium Atlas Investments. Kilo Architecture (Paris & Casablanca) and Julio Touza y Asociados (Madrid) are providing the architecture and interior design whilst Thed International (Tourism Hotel Engineering Development) is providing hotel consultancy. Besides 155 rooms featuring 17 suites and 41 villas the resort will offer a Thalasso centre with a minimum surface of 1,000 square meters and operated by the French spa “Thalgo”, two restaurants, two bars, leisure facilities such as a swimming pool and a kids club, conference areas, and a business centre.

Tangier is one of the most beautiful and popular cities in Morocco and has long been a favorite of film producers who have recorded parts of various James Bond movies ("Living Daylights", "From Russia with Love"), several Indiana Jones series and "The Bourne Ultimatum" movie here. It is also home to many of the world's renowned artists, musicians and designers. The city is also an important industrial hub and attracts a growing number of foreign companies like General Motors and Renault. Moreover, Tangier will soon be positioned as the most important port in the Mediterranean Sea and on the African continent thanks to the Med Port project. This complex which is estimated at 3 billion Euro after full completion (expected by mid-2009) will create around 145,000 direct and indirect jobs and will have a positive impact on the number of tourist arrivals in the city. Tangier has an international airport located 11 kilometers from the city centre, and regular ferry connections link its harbor to Spain and France.

Spain-Africa link decision 'near'
By Danny Wood
BBC News, Madrid



Until now, crossings between Spain and Africa have always been by sea

Spain says a feasibility study for an undersea tunnel to connect Spain and Morocco is in the final stages.

If the project goes ahead and construction begins, trains carrying both passengers and goods are expected to start using the tunnel in 2025.

The tunnel would be 40km long and pass 300m under the Mediterranean Sea.

The undersea link would unite North Africa and Europe for the first time since the continents separated more than 200 million years ago.

Swiss engineers are finalising a feasibility study that will determine whether this underwater connection is technically possible.

However, Angel Aparicio, president of the Spanish government agency co-ordinating the project says building the tunnel presents difficulties that may not be possible to overcome.

"The material here is not compact enough to allow an initial excavation.

"It is clay with rock and so it is not as compact as it is in the rest. As we have a lot of water we have a very high pressure and we are not sure whether we could go through with the tunnelling," he said.

"Those are the difficult questions."

Years of talk

If construction goes ahead the tunnel will take 15 years to build and cost at least $8bn (£4bn).

The Spanish and Moroccan governments see the tunnel as part of a new Mediterranean transport hub for passengers and goods.

Others are not so sure. The prospect of a physical connection between their country and the poorest continent in the world is alarming to some Spaniards.

Others are sceptical about this ambitious scheme ever being completed.

Spain and Morocco have discussed bridge and tunnel plans for more than 20 years.

However, this time the project has support from the European Union and the possibility of funding from the World Bank.

If the feasibility study is positive, work on the tunnel could start in 2009.

Un projet à près de 5,3 milliards d'euros

· Les résultats de faisabilité présentés en octobre
· Le tunnel n’entrera en activité qu’en 2025




Après le tunnel sous la Manche, un autre devra bientôt voir le jour, cette fois-ci sous le détroit de Gibraltar. Lors d’une rencontre avec son homologue marocain à Tanger le 4 août dernier, le ministre espagnol des Affaires étrangères, Miguel Moratinos, a annoncé l’achèvement des tests de faisabilité. Pour lui, l’ouvrage est un «projet de grande ambition qui permettra de relier l’Afrique à l’Europe».
Le diplomate espagnol a ajouté que les résultats seront présentés à l’Union européenne à partir du 13 octobre prochain au Luxembourg, à l’occasion de la réunion préliminaire du conseil d’association UE-Maroc. Pour rappel, depuis 1995, un organe intergouvernemental, le Comité mixte maroco-espagnol pour la liaison fixe à travers le détroit de Gibraltar, se charge de la supervision du projet. Il a confié les analyses du tracé initial de la future liaison conjointement à la Société marocaine d’études du détroit de Gibraltar (Sned) et la Société espagnole d’études de la communication fixe dans le détroit (Seceg). Les travaux menés par les deux entreprises publiques ont conclu à la faisabilité d’un tunnel qui devra relier Malabata près de Tanger à la ville espagnole Tarifa. «Le tunnel représente la solution la plus simple et la plus économique du point de vue du génie civil», est-il expliqué auprès de la Sned. La future construction sera longue de 37,7 km, dont 27,2 km sous le sous-sol marin. Une galerie de reconnaissance constituera une étape initiale avant le début des travaux d’excavation pour la construction du tunnel principal. Deux sections y seront prévues : l’une destinée au transport de personnes et de marchandises par le biais d’un TGV, l’autre au transport automobile.

Un plan dégagé par les études a prévu que l’édifice ne deviendrait opérationnel qu’en 2025, estimant son coût à 5,3 milliards d’euros. Le projet devra être co-financé par le Maroc et l’Espagne. L’UE et des organismes privés participeront également au financement. Si le projet aboutit, il contribuera à mettre fin aux encombrements causés régulièrement par le ferry reliant le Maroc à l’Espagne. Rappelons que le projet de liaison fixe a été lancé sur la base d’un accord de coopération bilatérale, signé le 24 octobre 1980. Un accord additionnel actualisant le premier a été conclu par la suite le 29 juillet 1989.
