Project Details

Project: Finger Jetty Pier Strengthening

Client: BAE Maritime

Contract Duration: 16 weeks

Scope of Works: Strengthening and Protection for Prefab FRP Jackets and Grout. Protection of piles and brace element with Tyfo SEH and SW1S systems.

Composites Construction UK (Fibrwrap) strengthened the 14 main piles that had suffered serious degradation from the environment by encasing them in pre-fabricated FRP jackets. The annular space between the jacket and pile was then filled with a high strength grout to increase the axial capacity. Finally a third layer of FRP was applied with Tyfo SW1-S (underwater epoxy) for additional hoop strength and protection. A percentage of the lateral braces were also wrapped with FRP and SW1S for protection.
