Refurbishment of Dover Berths 2, 3 & 7
Port of Dover
In Partnership with
Tony Gee and Partners
Working alongside Tony Gee and Partners, the aim of the project was to ensure that the ro-ro bridge could continue to provide reliable and safe service long into the future.
Both the modifications of the fingers and the walkways required careful detailing in order to ensure that they had sufficient service life as well as the ability to follow ship and tidal movements. The new changes saw Eadon subjecting the proposed revisions to tough fatigue and fracture toughness checks in order for the span deck to be competent under the frequent heavy weight of the vehicles it experiences. The works were carried out to a combination of BS 6349 – Maritime Structures and BS2573 Rules for the design of cranes, along with the relevant Eurocodes.
