Innovative solution

Specialist contractor, Core Cut Ltd, used advanced hydrodemolition techniques on the Port of Liverpool’s Seaforth Passage widening project.

The increasing size of next generation cargo ships calling at the port resulted in a need to expand the area at Liverpool’s Seaforth Passage and docks, which has been unchanged since its construction in 1971.

Northern Ireland company, Farrans Construction secured the contract to carry out the work which will widen the passage by 20 m to a total of 60 m on completion. It will also see new fendering around the Gladstone Lock port entry, the existing wall demolished and a new quay wall constructed.

The extra width of the passage will greatly improve turnaround times within the tidal windows. Before the major widening works could commence it was necessary to re-route various electrical and water services between the quay areas on either side of the Seaforth Passage. it was determined that the fastest and most economical way to do this was by using advanced hydrodemolition techniques.

Using the UK’s first Aqua Cutter Evolution 710V robotic unit from hydrodemolition specialist manufacturer, Aquajet Systems AB, Core Cut Ltd quickly put it to work on the widening project for Peel Ports; introducing hydrodemolition techniques to speed construction work.

This method eliminated the need for complicated scaffolding, and improved concrete removal in a difficult marine environment. It was here where the ability of Core Cut to offer both wire sawing and hydrodemolition services as a sub-contractor proved invaluable.
