London Avenue Canal Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Permanent Seepage Cutoff Wall in New Orleans, Louisiana

The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install a permanent seepage cutoff wall in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Press-In System was specified by the owner to address vibration concerns for the nearby residences. Primary access was limited to barges to supply material and crane support behind the floodwalls. A total of 9,000 wall feet of sheeting was installed within 4 months meeting the US Army Corps of Engineers June 01, 2011, Target Deadline for 100-yr storm level protection as part of the HSDRRS. The sheet piles were driven through dense sands and buried tree stumps without any major issues during driving.

    Sheet Piling Borehole Data

    Borehole data are direct measurements of temperature from boreholes drilled into the Earth’s crust. In Louisiana, 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 Permanent Seepage Cutoff Wall contractor that has the experience you can depend on to understand the earth’s surface. For this ECO1400 S Silent Piler Permanent Seepage Cutoff Wall project, we piled through 2 layers of the seafloor: Dense Fine Sand and Firm – Stiff Clay. We piled Nucor PZC18 / PZC19 sheets into the ocean floor at L=53ft – 59ft. 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 Louisiana or in the heart of Central Louisiana, Blue Iron, LLC can help.
