    Dublin Port’s Ocean Pier Berth 31-34 and Ro-Ro Jetty shortlisted for Engineering Project of the Year

    Keating as part of the Roadbridge Keating Joint Venture has been shortlisted for two awards for their work on Dublin Port’s Ocean Pier Berth 31-34 and Ro-Ro Jetty at the Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards 2019, the company said in its release.

    The Engineering Project of the Year Award recognises the highest level of achievement in the engineering field and provides peer recognition of outstanding Irish engineering work.

    Dublin Port Company (DPC) is developing Dublin Port on the basis of Masterplan 2040. This was first published in 2012 and reviewed and updated in 2018. Development works at Dublin Port are already advanced with construction of the Alexandra Basin Redevelopment (ABR) Project well under way and capital investment of €1 billion planned over the next decade.
     
    Keating as part of the Roadbridge Keating Joint Venture has been working with Dublin Port under a Single Party Framework to deliver a major share of the required capital infrastructure, including Ocean Pier Berth 31-34.

    The first section of this project, ‘Berth 31/32’ was commissioned in Feb 2017 and involved the design and construction of 90m of deepwater combi-quay wall under a challenging delivery programme. The complex quay structure included two linkspan bankseats for a novel interchangeable linkspan solution. This section of works was programmed, budgeted, designed and constructed in under 174 days all while keeping port operations active and while working within strict environmental rules. ‘Berths 32-34’ were subsequently commissioned. Remarkably, this highly technical 340m quay wall structure was programmed, budgeted, designed and constructed all within a 197 day off-season possession, improving on the previous record set by ‘Berth 31/32’.

    Keating as part of the Roadbridge Keating Joint Venture has been working with Dublin Port under a Single Party Framework to deliver a major share of the required capital infrastructure. One such commission is the Dublin Port ABR Ro-Ro Jetty project – which is a critical element of the overall Alexandra Basin Redevelopment project. Ro-Ro, short for roll-on/ roll-off, refers to shipping services and activities where freight vehicles are driven on and off ferries. The ambitious project has delivered a new jetty which is future proofed to cater for the largest in class Ro-Ro vessels in the world. Delivered in a truly collaborative fashion from concept to construction, this 273m long jetty was delivered on time and within budget using highly innovative solutions and bespoke construction techniques.
