Falmouth Dry Docks

Client:Raymond Brown Construction

Background

Falmouth Dry Docks is a busy working port handling over 100,000T of product annually and with over 30 firms located in the docks providing a full range of services including towage, ship’s agency, area port health, diving services, local surveyors and tank washing.

Raymond Brown were tasked with the development of 2 new wet docks, 3 construction halls and a four-storey office complex.

The Overall Objective

The expansion involved the creation of a new sea wall, which required a cementitious solution with low heat of hydration, high early strength, good long-term strength gain and, because of the aggressive marine conditions, enhanced resistance to sulphate and chloride ingress.

Solution

A Siltbuster pHD was quickly deployed to site on a pallet, and operated in conjunction with 2 standard builders skips lined with plastic. Trucks would back up and clean their chutes into 1, while the waters were over pumped and treated in skip 2. This low cost solution handled multiple washdown events every day and ensured no high pH water was discharged off site.
