Falmouth-based Fugro GeoServices (FGS) was the principal construction company who erected the new Eastern Refueling Jetty with the Port of Falmouth.
The Eastern Jetty project involves the fabrication and installation of 33 piles, with pile cap bracing structures and the installation of 12 bridge sections and concrete deck.
The wharf will be 250 metres long with another 50 metres of link bridges over two mooring dolphins to the existing north dolphin on the end of the current wharf. Much of the old wooden jetty is in a poor state of repair, ravaged by marine borers over the passage of time.
Pipeline Protection coating operatives worked from Fugro’s jack-up barge Deep Diver located within the port. From suspended man riders our operatives prepared and applied CANUSA HSS sleeves to provide anti-corrosion protection
