The removal of an old concrete jetty as part of the Dover Western Docks Revival Project.
Our customer needed huge steel frames to fit over the reinforced concrete legs. In addition to this, an extra steel mast was also required to house the saw unit that would be used to cut the jetty.
Sounded like a simple job until the dimensions came in. The frame needed to be 3.7m x 9.7m to give clearance around the concrete leg.
Processed Steel Supplied
To complete the frame and mast we needed a vast amount of universal columns. Secondly, all of the steel needed to be sawn to length with pre-drilled holes ready for bolting the sections together.
The Cutting Began
The frames were positioned over the concrete legs and the cutting began. Once the cut was completed, the frames were lifted off and positioned back on the quayside. The large floating crane was then positioned and the blocks of concrete were lifted off and moved to an area on the quayside to be broken up.
Once all of the cuts had been made and the steel frames finished with, they were cut up for scrap.
