River Yar Boatyard, Yarmouth, Norfolk, Sheet Piling
Supply and install steel sheet piles to form a new quayside at the River Yar boatyard on the Isle of Wight.
Our customer had designed a scheme to allow development of his boatyard. This called for a sheet pile wall in front of the existing timber quayside along with a cut-off wall on one section.
To gain planning for the scheme the design was very specific in the type of sheet pile that could be used. Using Ale Pilings in-house stock and wider procurement resources we were able to supply the rare but specific type of pile that had been specified.
Another requirement for the wall was to provide watertight containment of chemicals which were left in the ground from historic industries which were situated on the quayside. Again this required very specific hydrophilic sealant pre-installed in the sheet pile clutches. Ale Piling applied this in controlled conditions to assure water tightness of the wall.
Ale Pilings ability to source the correct materials and ship them and our equipment across to the Isle of Wight using conventional delivery methods provided a cost-effective solution for our customer.
