International Ship Breaking Bulkhead

Marine Services

International Ship Breaking a division of EMR – Brownsville, Tx New Ship Dock Bulkhead

GROUP Deep Foundations was contracted by EMR to build this 1580ft long King Pile Bulkhead large enough to dismantle a retired US Aircraft Carrier.  The project cost was over $12 million dollars.  GROUP drove 42 inch diameter king piles with sheet pile interlocks to exact tolerances to accept the sheet piles for this bulkhead.  Also installed was a sheet pile tie back wall with tie back rods on five foot centers.  GROUP dredged over 300,000 cubic yards of spoils (-29ft msl) and removed them from the site.  King piles were filled with concrete and the site was graded upon completion.  This job was completed ahead of schedule with ZERO safety incidents.  EMR is a repeat customer of GROUP Deep Foundations.
