Holmsgarth Mooring Dolphin

A mooring dolphin at the Holmsgarth ferry terminal had been damaged by a ship during a storm and the Lerwick Port Authority engaged us to undertake the necessary remedial work.

  • Contract Value: £1,800,000
  • Client: Lerwick Port Authority

Project Description

We encased the existing mooring dolphin, constructing a mass concrete structure supported by tubular piles driven into the seabed. The piles were pre-stressed using an anchor fixed in the rock: the piles were then pulled against the rock by tightening the securing nut on the anchor. The contract value was approximately £1.8m.

This job required a substantial volume of concrete, more than 770 cubic metres in one structure. All of it was mixed in our trucks.
