Permanent Bulkhead Wall Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Emergency Scour Protection in Lantana, Florida
The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install a new permanent bulkhead wall for an emergency seawall in Lantana, Florida. Murray Logan and Blue Iron teamed up to install the emergency seawall for the City of Lantana. The dunes had been eroded such it threatened the existing city facilitates located on the beach. The slope created from the scour posed significant concerns if conventional Vibratory equipment was used. The steel sheet pile wall was completed without damage to any existing structures and in very close proximity to the Ritz-Carleton, without complaint.

Sheet Piling Borehole Data
Borehole data are direct measurements of temperature from boreholes drilled into the Earth’s crust. In Florida, 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 Bulkhead Walls & Seawall contractor that has the experience you can depend on to understand the earth’s surface. For this ECO1400 S Silent Piler Bulkhead Wall project, we piled through 1 layer of the seafloor: Dense Shelly Sand. We piled Gerdau PZC26 sheets into the ocean floor at L=35ft. 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 Florida or the Eastern Shores of Florida, Blue Iron, LLC can help.
