LPV117 Emergency Repair Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Permanent Cutoff Wall in New Orleans, Louisiana
The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install a permanent cutoff wall in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Press-In Method for sheeting installation was specified into the project plans due to unusually hard local ground conditions which had caused previous projects to fail. The advanced Water Jet System was utilized in conjunction with the Silent Piler in order to successfully achieve full embedment depth regardless of the ground conditions.

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 Emergency Repair contractor that has the experience you can depend on to understand the earth’s surface. For this ECO1400 S Silent Piler Flood Control project, we piled through 1 layer of the seafloor: Silty Clay. We piled PZC19 sheets into the ocean floor at L=55ft. 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 the Northern region of Louisiana, Blue Iron, LLC can help.
