VIDEO: Liverpool2 Scheme on Track

Peel Ports Group has just released a video about the Liverpool2 project, their new $500 million container terminal being built at the Port of Liverpool.

Contractors Bam Nuttall and Van Oord have completed the first phase of the infilling, using 1.43 million tonnes of sand and silt deposited from dredged material.

The piling process, which began in 2014 and is due to be completed in the next few months, involves drilling from large jack-up rigs and inserting tubular piles to create a new 854m long quay wall.

The area behind the wall has been dredged to bed rock to allow for virgin materials to be deposited.

Other significant elements of the project to date include:

  • installation underway of 261 anchor blocks 3 meters below the current infilled level;
  • connection of the anchor block to piles with steel bars, to straighten and tension the quay wall structure;
  • vibrocompaction of the infill to settle it and drive out water;
  • 220m extension to an existing sewerage outfall through the site, towed in a single piece from Norway;
  • installation of drainage works directly behind quay wall;
  • upfill from (+)6.5 meters to (+)10 meters to cover the tie bars and anchor blocks to the top level of the piles.
