Project Win – Engineering a Piling Solution

By April 9, 2020News

With essential upgrades being made to the Cape Lambert Port A (CLA) wharf facility and associated jettyMadsen Giersing has been engaged by Austral Construction to modify and upgrade the piling leader that will be used in the refurbishment of the facility’s dolphins and jetty. 

Madsen Giersing’s Lasse Madsen outlined the project “This project will see major refurbishments undertaken to the wharf’s dolphins and existing jetty. Built in the 1970s and added to up until 2002, they are approaching the end of their life and need replacement to be able to be resilient to future adverse weather events and for the facility to remain operational.” 

“With 144 piles to be driven, Austral Construction required an experienced partner to modify and upgrade an existing piling leader so that it could handle the project and given our experience with marine engineering, we were engaged.”
