The Solution

The works comprised driven steel raking & vertical steel piles to support mooring & berthing dolphins together with driven steel clutched tubular piles to form an underwater retaining wall to the rear of the new berth pocket.

Red7Marine designed & fabricated the temporary works piling gates & deployed crane barges, transport pontoons & jack up barges, together with the associated crew & supervision, in order to facilitate construction.

Following piling works the berthing & mooring dolphins were constructed from pre-cats & cast in-situ reinforced concrete & in turn these were then fitted with fender units & mooring equipment.

“Our relationship with Red7Marine and their Personnel through all stages of this challenging Project has been based on partnership and co-operation. A huge consideration was given at the initial phase to identify potential difficulties. This has been followed by development of various scenarios and methods of addressing such difficulties which provided a great benefit during actual works. We look forward to continuing the relationship with the Red7Marine team.”
