Upgrade to berths 1 to 4, 13 and 14 of Maydon Wharf for Transnet, KZN, South Africa 2014-2018
A joint venture, consisting of Stefanutti Stocks Coastal and its enterprise development partner, Axsys Projects, used some technical innovations while reconstructing and deepening the six berths that form the Port of Durban’s largest break-bulk, edible-oils and dry bulk-handling precinct.
The scope of work, included a new HZM-AZ combination wall system with anchor piles, a new cope, underwater sheet pile installation, earthworks, re-surfacing, dredging and scour protection.
Techniques, never used in South Africa, were implemented for the installation of anchor piles, as well as the in-situ construction of the submerged fender panels for the cope structure.
This marine construction project was named the winner of the Railway & Harbour category in the 2016 SAICE-SAFCEC Awards.
In March 2017 the project achieved 2-million Lost Time Injury Free man hours worked.
