Spanish term or phrase: garaje
Here is an item regarding harbour gates, which extensively refers to "garaje", which all my dictionaries translate conventionally as garage (for cars). But... "Hay que prever válvulas en los mamparos de cierre a través de las cuales se llenará el garaje de agua una vez terminada la reparación o conservación de la puerta. Cuando el garaje este en condiciones secas, el agua es retenida por el mamparo. A través de las válvulas el garaje puede ser llenado con agua."

Explanation:
The only two explanations I knew about "garaje" are a) a place to park cars and b) a place to repair cars. I've looked at the dictionary of the Royal Academy at this it what its says:

garaje.
(Del fr. garage).
1. m. Local destinado a guardar automóviles.
2. m. Taller de reparación de vehículos.
3. m. P. Rico. gasolinera (ǁ establecimiento donde se vende gasolina).

I know it's still not very helpful regarding harbour gates, but this is the only thing I can come up with.
