Piles Trial Programme

Date:

This month external contractors, Walcon Marine are on site with their piling barge the “Walcon Wizard” to test drive new piles in strategic locations across the footprint of the new floating marina, in order to gain a much better understanding of the ground in which the new marina piles will be driven, to create the new marina.

The current floating marina is held up by 14 piles which will increase to approximately 100 piles driven into the river bed, once the new marina is developed.

Andy Osman CMM, Marina Manager explains further: “We have no knowledge of how hard or soft the ground is and so this trial programme is necessary to make sure we are happy with the ground conditions. Works commenced on Monday 16th March and this marks a significant step forward for the marina redevelopment as a whole.”
