USACE – Gardere Canal Flood Control Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Permanent Retaining Wall in Harvey, Louisiana

The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install a permanent retaining wall in Harvey, Louisiana. Giken was originally Subcontracted to install over 14,000 Linear wall feet, which was completed by Blue Iron Foundations and Shoring. The USACE specified the Press-In system be used to install the steel sheet piles due to the close proximity of the adjacent homes the entire stretch of canal. Two Pilers were used to install the steel sheets which were fed by only one small mantis 30-ton support crane, doubling the production at no additional cost.

    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 Flood Control 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 PZ35 sheets into the ocean floor at L=45ft. 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.
