SHINTECH PILING PROJECT
About this Project
Project Type: piling/deep foundations
Boh Bros. assisted Shintech on its new $1.49 billion chlor alkali and vinyl chloride monomer production facility by driving 6,500, 14-inch-diameter steel pipe piles and constructing numerous pipe rack and tank foundations. The foundations are designed in 20 different sizes, ranging from 6- to 20-foot square, and from 16 inches to 3.5 feet thick – Boh Bros. crews also installed over 18,000 CY of concrete foundations throughout the facility. The piles arrived at the site in two pieces and were welded together for a total length of 130 feet. All of the piles are filled with concrete, which helps Shintech achieve greater lateral stability for a variety of different sized units across its 80-acre site. Boh utilized up to 10 driving rigs, completing the piling scope in 15 weeks.
Avondale Marine Project
Boh Bros. assisted Avondale Marine in rebuilding Dock No. 2 so that Host can use the dock’s existing pile–supported ship ways to construct a suspended roadway. Once operational, trucks will be able to carry heavy loads from dock to land, and vice versa, as the roadway will have a 100-ton capacity.
