The deep-water berth being constructed will extend up to 250m in length and have a new water depth of 12m CD.
The work is being carried out to replace the existing 1978 island berth which was constructed from a suspended reinforced concrete deck on steel piles.
Red7Marine was responsible for installing 136 new steel tubular piles with intermediate sheet piles to create a 400m of new combi-wall structure. The piling was carried out from the deck of Red7Marine's 1000t jack-up barge, the Haven SeaChallenger and its 250t jack-up barge, the Haven Seariser 4. The SeaChallenger features a bull rail arrangement on the port side which allows fitment of a pile gate which was used on the project as a gating system to install the piles to accuracy and tolerance.
Red7Marine has been working with the Port and its chosen designers for several months, with on-site activity beginning in October 2022 and finishing in January 2023.
