AMSOL recently completed a Marine Civils project in the Port of Cape Town whereby sections of an existing revetment wall were rehabilitated. The project, which commenced
in late 2017, included design and conceptual modelling to mitigate the failure of structural integrity of the quayside and alleviate erosion, as well as commercial diving and topography surveying to gather underwater data.
All personnel, construction equipment, commercial dive systems and ancillary equipment were mobilised in early 2018 after which excavation was executed in phases to maintain the integrity of the operational quay.
The new structure was successfully finalised by installing a combination of steel reinforcement and modified underwater concrete between the existing and newly constructed concrete offset. A total volume of 394m³ of concrete slurry was discharged throughout the project.
The AMSOL team successfully completed the project in accordance with International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA), Oil and Gas Producers (OGP) and Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) regulations and guidelines within an internationally recognized quality management system certified by Lloyds Register and including ISO 9001; ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001.
