Land & Water were commissioned to carry out the construction of 3 new dry docks.
The works consisted of the installation of 200m of LX27 sheet piles of various lengths, from 4m up to 12m and 9 tubular fender piles 18m long with a diameter of 610mm with another 24 tubular piles for a new crane platform. These piles were installed using movax piling rig.
The crane platform was constructed using a temporary support system of stub beams welded onto tubular piles, these had adjustable jacks & Megashor waling beams attached to carry the temporary support system. This system carried the full crane slab whilst under construction which was approx. 30m x 10m wide with the thickness of 550mm. This was poured in single operation with 185m³ of concrete placed in one day.
In addition to the piling works a new workshop and welfare facility was constructed using a steel portal framed building and associated drainage works.
