Stretching over 70 kms from the Old Port to Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, the Port of Marseilles is the largest French port and the third largest oil port in the world.
At the beginning of 2012, SOCOTEC was selected by the Port of Marseilles-Fos to carry out regulatory checks of all the working equipment and electrical installations that it manages there.
Not only shackles and slings, but also port cranes and gangways for embarkation to ships… in total, more than 1,500 items of equipment are being checked. At the same time, 80 high and low voltage units, 80 buildings on the site, road lighting, ships’ electrical cabinets and 23 pumping stations are also being inspected.
