Largely due to the growth in the world population and the consequent increase in global trade, there is growing demand for harbour construction whether this involves building new harbours or existing ports that need to optimise or expand their capacity.
The activities in this field include :
Using its specialised drilling equipment, custom-made piling frames and templates, GeoSea can install anchor piles in a vertical or raked position and for diameters ranging between some decimetres to approximately 5 m diameter or even more. Anchor piles can installed by means of hammering, drilling or vibrating or a combination of these techniques.
GeoSea has used its specialist engineering knowledge and experience for the construction of jetties all over the world. The company can offer both substructures, as well as topside installation works. The substructure of a jetty consists of repeating bents of vertical or raked steel piles, which are driven into the ground by means of hammering, drilling, vibrating or a combination of these techniques. Topside installation works include the installation of all sorts of pile caps, headstocks, temporary and permanent bracings, topside modules, navigation aids, conveyor belts, crane structures and any other facilities required for the project.
Mooring and Berthing Dolphins
Mooring and berthing dolphins are designed to safely moor vessels alongside offshore structures. GeoSea has unique experience of the construction of mooring and berthing dolphins through many successfully completed jetty projects worldwide. GeoSea can offer both substructures/foundations, as well as topside installation works.
Quay wall renovation
Quay wall renovation works might be required to reinforce existing quay walls to enable heavier materials and equipment to be handled. GeoSea can provide services ranging from chartering jack-up platforms as a stable working platform to facilitate drilling works, to the management of full renovation projects.
