In February 2017 works commenced on Prince Charles Wharf Extension at the Port of Dundee. The existing structure has lain un-operational for approximately 13 years and had suffered significant failures both during the original construction (2002) and after initial remedial works were undertaken.
These works are planned to restore the wall and quayside to full operational use and provide an enhanced level of deck loading than had been originally designed for. The quayside development is approximately 200m long and an operational area of 40m wide will be created by introducing new piling, tie rods and precast concrete units. The new quay will be feature a 50m x 40m heavy lift area this will allow the facility to increase handle ever increasing loads.
Works are progressing well on site with the installation of the bearing piles, drilling and concreting of combi wall piles and the installation of the rear waling
