Method Engineering

TWD specializes in tailored method engineering and equipment design for diverse piled structures. We design tools for combiwall constructions, sheet-piled walls, cofferdams, decks on piles, trestles, dolphins, and cellular cofferdams. We carefully review the entire operation to determine the key equipment functionalities to optimize operational efficiency. Our thorough study considers all critical factors, such as piling grid setup, irregularities, wave and current loads on piles, crane pitching method, installation tolerances, and hammer passing clearances. Our structural and mechanical engineers then develop a custom piling template that matches the required functionalities and supports the pile installation method.

Tool Deployment Method

The choice of marine plant equipment determines our approach to developing the optimal piling methods. TWD offers a range of innovative solutions, including pile gates supported from the sideshell of floating or jack-up barges, as well as standalone options. In standalone configurations, our designs can be supported either on previously installed piles or temporary spuds. Furthermore, we have developed outriggers and platforms that leverage existing quay at the shore or temporary jetties to facilitates crane access and streamline construction logistics around each pier structure.
