Port Remedial Services
DWG Infraco is a specialist in maintaining and rehabilitating critical maritime and multimodal infrastructure. We have been involved in many projects, from high-volume, fast-moving container facilities to historic listed structures.
The constant presence of large amounts of water means that ports and harbours are areas that experience frequent problems with ground voids, ground subsidence and structure sinking. Moisture has the power to do significant damage to the stabilisation of structures, and this damage has the potential to lead to dangerous incidents that should be entirely avoidable.
Restore Structural Integrity
We can quickly fill voids in port and harbour areas accurately and economically, restoring their structural integrity. Our solutions result in long-term support and durability and, at the same time, increase the bearing capacity and consolidate the ground.
So, we not only repair: we also improve.
DWG Infraco is an expert in ground stabilisation and can help raise, re-levelling and re-supporting seaports, dockside facilities, crane rails, port terminal pathways and drive lanes etc.
Container Handling Facilities
Container handling facilities are one of our main areas of work, due to the tonnages of traffic using these areas. We have the capability to work within an operational facility without disrupting the daily critical operations. Our teams will liaise with operational management staff to maximise the working opportunities and minimise disruption in the safest possible manner.
Most of our processes are non-intrusive other than drilling, so there are no major excavations and long cure times of materials. In many cases, a return to service is immediately upon completion of the work.
Our services in these areas are:
- Slab lifting and stabilisation
- Void filling
- Concrete surface repairs
- Embedded rail replacement
