Project Description

Working in partnership with Ravestein Marine this project involved the construction of foundations to facilitate the new lock gates to the largest port (by tonnage) in the UK.  Works were demanding, harzardous and very challenging on site working directly on the lock side between daily live shipping movements. Four 150m3 foundations complete with 80 tons of reinforcement were constructed to accommodate the main rams and top anchorages. Within these works, troughs were installed for hydraulic pipes and concrete supplied and laid to the dock bottom in preparation for the installation of the new lock gates.
