The privileged location of the bay of Alger, as well as its good natural conditions, has raised the demand of pleasure marine constructions.

In January 2007, BTP Infraestructuras offers an ante project that is approved by the client, with a dock and a counter dock, and an orientation that improves access and maneuverability of sport boats, with an area on land big enough for the necessary port services and the good exploitation of the marina. The layer of the dock is composed of CUBIPOD pieces of 3t, being the round head composed of 12t CUBIPOD pieces.
