A combination of a well designed and manufactured sheet pile interlock and a properly applied sealant can virtually eliminate any fluid leakage through the sheet piles, even at high hydrostatic pressures. ESC offers a range of time proven interlock sealants that can be used for hot rolled, cold formed and cold rolled sheet piles in various conditions from tropical to arctic. They are especially effective for cofferdams and marine applications.
Barrow Island Load-Out Jetty, Australia
ESC delivered over 1,100 tons of combined wall system to MMJV for the prestigious Barrow Island LNG Plant Material Offloading Facility in Western Australia. ESC completed manufacture in both its China and Malaysia facilities. The King Pipe Pile design also contained structural fabrication scope for lifting lugs, tie rod brackets, shear connections and more.
ESC in Malaysia and China built the combi-wall system specially designed for the Barrow Island LNG Plant Material Offloading Facility (MOF). This is part of the massive Gorgon Project for Chevron Australia Pty Ltd. The MOF will facilitate the offloading of the materials and the components that will be used to construct a major LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) processing facility on the island. The Gorgon gas fields, off the northwest coast of Western Australia (WA), contain about 40 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and this development currently represents the largest single project underway in the world.
ESC’s client was MMJV which is a project specific joint venture created by the joining of Marine and Civil Construction Pty Ltd of Australia and Murray & Roberts Marine of South Africa.
ESC China Manufacturing Scope
654 tons of Ø1,219mm x 32mm LSAW tubular piles in varying lengths from 13m to 20m with numerous accessories such as clutches, lifting lugs, bolt connections, hose connections, shear connections, tie rod bracket and others. The piles required 1,500 microns of Jotun’s Baltoflake applied in various lengths before shipping.
217 tons of Ø1,219mm x 25mm LSAW tubular piles in 13m lengths with numerous accessories such as clutches, lifting lugs, bolt connections, hose connections, shear connections, tie rod bracket and others. The piles required 1,500 microns of Jotun’sBaltoflake applied in various lengths before shipping.
97 tons of Ø1,540mm x 20mm SSAW tubular piles.
ESC Malaysia Manufacturing Scope
140 tons of infill sheet piles in lengths varying from 7 to 13m for the project and also coating them using 1,500 microns of Jotun’sBaltoflake with accessories added such as bolt connections and grip plates.
The unique aspects of the project were dealt with by ESC through constant dialogue with MMJV and Chevron’s Engineers Kellog Joint Venture (KBR, JGC, Hatch and Clough). Design evolution during the project construction required the manufacture from ESC to be very dynamic and able to facilitate change.
