Description: Richards Bay Harbour/Natal/South Africa



North Breakwater and North Headland



The swell waves on the east coast of South Africa are enormous and can swell to a great height. The breakwaters are situated in an area which has one of the strongest breakers on the earth. Even the sea manual warns very strongly about the sea breakers here. Basically this situation is encountered the whole year round. In order to protect the harbour from the strong sea motion and the frequent storms of the Indian Ocean, thenorth breakwater, north headland and the south breakwater were constructed on both sides of the harbour entrance into the open sea. The south breakwater is 1400 meters long, and the north breakwater 600 meters long. On the north side of the harbour entrance there is an arch-shaped inner breakwater - the north headland 480 meters long. On the north breakwater the largest caterpillar crane in the world at that time was used, the Manitowoc 4600 with a maximum load-bearing capacity of 350 t
