As the new causeway out to Granite Island at Victor Harbour is now completed, the old causeway needed to be disassembled and removed.
Ecospec Australia have been awarded the contract to disassemble and remove the old causeway. They are doing this using a spider crane on jack-up piles which rest on the seabed.
Magryn undertook a review of their methodology and the transfer of loads from the spider crane feet to a support frame to the jack up the piles, to enable EcoSpec to safely remove the causeway structure.
Magryn have been engaged by Coorong Council to review the design and installation of the piling and framing associated with the new vessel mooring facility located at the outer end of the main Meningie Jetty.
This facility is a fixed jetty (not floating pontoons) constructed of aluminium framing with fibreglass decking.
