Sheet Piling, innovative solutions for port/marine Structures
From cyclical wave action, to dynamic ship mooring forces and extreme crane loads, port and marine structures pose complex design and construction challenges for Engineers and Contractors; even more so in todays ‘ highly competitive port industry. As the shipbuilding industry continues to drive technology into post panamax vessel production, these mammoth 5000 plus TEU container ships require berthing and draught depths up to and greater than 50 ‘.
As port facilities race to remain competitive in a global commerce, there is a major push to upgrade marine infrastructure and accommodate these larger vessels.
Port Designers turn to steel sheet piles and combined wall systems for deepening and load capacity upgrade. Fortunately, JD Fields has one of the broadest ranges of sheet piling and high modulus wall solutions to meet the design and construction demands of the port industry.
