Kandla Port Trust - Jetty



Case Studies

Project: Kandla Port Trust Jetty


Details: The jetty comprises 10 cargo berths in straight quay line in a sheltered creek. Each berth is 200 meter long. There are a number of bays, each 23 meter in length.


Challenge: The salinity of the marine environment had resulted in corrosion of rebars, spalling and cracking of concrete. There was heavy damage to quay walls due to constant collisions with berthing ships.


Solution: Various components of the jetty were restored by removing damaged concrete and building up sections by polymer mortar and guniting, as required. The project was completed within the stipulated deadline in spite of the challenges posed by the tidal variations, heavy marine traffic and space restrictions.
