Harwich International Port

Berth 2 - September 2018

Products Used - Bimagrip LS Anti-slip and Waterproofing System
Acraprime & Emery Bauxite   


BRIEF
JMS Lincoln were chosen to carry out a refurbishment project at Harwich International Port which has been an operational Port since 1862. The work was focused on numerous areas around lower and upper level Berth 2. 

The Client requested that the span remain operational throughout our works, so a plan was set up to continue our works whilst the Port could continue its day to day operations without interruption, all area was marked out in need of refurbishment and traffic management was set up by JMS.

PROJECT

After observation on site, it was concluded that some areas in need of anti-skid could not be diverted by a traffic management route on the span due to its narrow entrance and exit. Same day trafficked areas were only possible for accurate and correct application due to JMS’s innovative and highly productive team & plant and careful consideration.


Old surfacing was heated mechanically by our own unique lorry mounted Jet Dryer System, before being removed by bobcats with scarper modified attachments. The marked-out areas also received captive blasting treatment from our Blastrac Lorry with its wider blasting range and production freeing up more time.

All blasted areas were then cleaned and coated using Acraprime to protect the steel work from corrosion. Once cured, Bimagrip LS was installed by serrated squeegee to each designated section before moving on to the next working area. After a section had cured, Emery Bauxite aggregate was recycled via bobcats with sweeper attachments.

Over 500sqm was completed in 4 days whilst continuing Port operations with the client commenting on how happy he was with the new anti-skid surface and team’s effort & professionalism on-site. JMS pride ourselves on our turn-key ability to work to the marine industries ever tight and changing schedules, we never turn down a challenge by careful planning, thorough preparation and skill of operatives.
