Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Reach W5

Project Details

Client: Environment Agency
Principal Contractor: Team Van Oord
Value of contract: £975,000.00

Description of Works:

The installation only of 1140 No 10.8m long PU28 steel sheet piles.  The piles form the new flood defence wall at Reach W5 on the project.  Piles were installed using Giken Silent Pilers.

The Eastern Section was installed using a Giken F201 in Solo mode with the full GRB System used (Giken Clamp Crane, Power Unit Runner and Pile Runner).

The Central Section was installed concurrent with the Eastern Section using a combination of the Giken F201 in water jetting mode and the Giken ECO700S in Supercrush mode. The change to Supercrsuh mode was necessitated by the dramatic change in the prevailing ground conditions encountered on site.

The Western Section was installed using the Giken ECO700S in Supercrush mode with the full GRB System used.

The Giken and GRB System were serviced by 2 No 50-tonne crawler cranes.
