The ‘Reclamation for Pasir Panjang Terminal Phases 3 and 4’ project, carried out by Penta-Ocean Construction, has been nominated for the IADC Safety Award 2016.

Three aspects of this port project located in Singapore were recently nominated for its safety features.

The first aspect is the “geo-bund” temporary edge structure for land reclamation. They provided notable safety benefits for the adjacent dredging work and construction of caisson quay wall.

The second aspect was the dredging and rock blasting works for deepening the ship turning basin between the new reclamation and the existing container terminal berths. These operations were carried out while normal terminal operations continued for a protracted period, without any incident affecting the terminal operations.

The third was the installation of an all-weather steel gantry tower for slipforming work to construct the walls of the mega box caissons for the quay wall. Hundred-fifty caissons weighing between 7,000 to 12,000 tons each were fabricated and transported by sea to the final location and installed safely.

The winner of the IADC Safety Award will be announced in mid-September this year.
