Cellullar Sheet Pile Template – Dinish Wharf Expansion

Circular sheet pile installation template

In the County Cork, Ireland, five cell walls were installed as part of the breakwaters in the Dinish Warf expansion. TWD designed a circular template against which the sheet piles were placed to form the closed-cell walls. The template, which is assembled and deployed from a barge, is supported on temporary spuds that were used to lower and elevate the template on winched systems.

Moreover, we designed bolted interfaces to attach an external guiding ring to allow the same template to be used for cell walls of larger diameters.

 

Project highlights

  • Modular design
  • The template consists of up to three guiding levels and can be used for various water depths
