Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler Contractor Services – Channelview, Texas

Houston Fuel Oil – Berth 4 Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Permanent Bulkhead Wall in Channelview, Texas

The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install a permanent bulkhead wall in Channelview, Texas. The Press-In System was specified by the project designers Lanier and Associates, Inc of New Orleans, LA to address Vibration concerns for the nearby underground utilities. The steel sheet piles were installed within several feet from the Central Water Authority (CWA) main potable water distribution line which feeds most of Greater Houston with drinking water, as well as directly above a chemical line bundle.

    Sheet Piling Borehole Data

    Borehole data are direct measurements of temperature from boreholes drilled into the Earth’s crust. In Texas, you have multiple layers of sand located beneath the Ocean. Every geological area has different Borehole data so it’s important to hire a Giken Silent Piler Port Bulkhead Wall contractor that has the experience you can depend on to understand the earth’s surface. For this ECO1400 S Silent Piler Port Bulkhead Wall project, we piled through 2 layers of the seafloor: Clay and Silty Fine Sand. We piled AZ26-700 sheets into the ocean floor at L=30ft – 65ft. Blue Iron, LLC has the Giken Silent Piler experience you can depend on to finish the job at hand. Whether you are in the Gulf Coast of Texas or the Great Plains of Texas, Blue Iron, LLC can help.
