At the beginning of the 1970s, ETPO carried out a series of coastal and river worksites in Le Havre. They began with the construction of an oil tanker pier as well as the gigantic (record for its time) François the 1st lock. Just a few years later, ETPO sent engineers and technical drafters from Nantes to work on the Antifer oil terminal as part of a joint venture. These recurring worksites pushed the company to open an agency in the Seine Maritime department.
Today, with thirty permanent employees, ETPO Le Havre also carries out civil engineering works projects in addition to coastal and river works. Their activity, mainly based in the departments of Normandy (and Seine Maritime) extends from Saint-Malo to Dunkerque.
With specialized knowledge in industrial civil works, the agency offers turnkey solutions to its industrial customers for construction of buildings, restructuring factories, deep foundations, special works, etc.
In parallel, ETPO Le Havre carries out all types of works on coastal or river sites for private and public customers: solid quays and quays on piles, piers, mooring dolphins, breakwaters and protection works, locks, cofferdams and booms, marine salvage or removal of obstructions, etc.
The agency also meets customer needs in terms of expertise and periodic inspection of their structures (concrete expertise for process, annual inspections of installations, etc.). ETPO Le Havre accompanies them in designing their projects in collaboration with its integrated technical design office.
Requiring a high level of skills and specific equipment, ETPO is recognized as one of the national leaders in these highly specialized trades. The Normandy agency notably works for the Grands Ports Maritimes and Ports Normands Industriels ports located in river-port areas, the French government and local governments, French waterways and insurance companies.
