Piling Hammers in Reconstruction Of The Port Of Durban

South Africa

A joint venture comprising Stefanutti Stocks Marine and Johannesburg-based Axsys Infrastructure (SSA JV) was awarded this contract in April 2014 with completion scheduled for December 2016.Piling Hammers in Reconstruction Of The
Port Of Durban

Construction work is well underway for the reconstruction and deepening of the Port of Durban, Maydon Wharf, South Africa’s largest break-bulk and dry-bulk handling precinct in the Transnet ports system, which has been developed in phases since the early twentieth century.

The wharf covers 120 hectares and includes 15 berths that are collectively able to handle over seven million tonnes yearly. Development will ensure that the infrastructure will be operational for the next 50 years as well as catering for the newer generations of vessels using the port’s facilities.

Following extensive assessment on the condition of the Maydon Wharf quay wall at the Port it was found that seven of the 14 berths were in a critical condition and in danger of collapse.

This port project forms part of a larger R307 billion (£13.75 billion) investment plan to upgrade and expand Transnet’s railways, ports and pipelines between 2013 and 2019.

Civil engineering and marine specialist contractor Stefanutti Stocks Marine won the contract to undertake the rebuilding of berth 12 which had been identified as the most urgent in need of repair.

This was successfully completed by the Cape Town based company in 2012. The next project, covering the remaining six berths 1 to 4, 13 and 14, was put out to tender in late 2013.

A joint venture comprising Stefanutti Stocks Marine and Johannesburg-based Axsys Infrastructure (SSA JV) was awarded this contract in April 2014 with completion scheduled for December 2016.
