Project Details

  • Client Fortescue Metals Group

  • Duration 6 months

Total AMS were contracted by Fortescue Metals Group to install 125 No. 1200OD interlocking piles in South West Creek to form a retaining wall thereby permitting dredging to occur within 10m of their existing infrastructure at the Herb Elliot Port. Total AMS utilised a 350t payload jackup barge, 240' crane barge equipped with a 650t crane and an IHC S-280 piling hammer to install the piles up to 35m into the seabed.  Some piles were drilled with a pile top drill rig to progress the piles beyond refusal at specific locations.  The project duration was 6 months and required a crew of 40 people.
