Project: Potash Terminal Quay Repairs Project
Client: Tees Dock, Middlesbrough
The Potash Terminal Quay is an open, reinforced concrete, type quay and is approximately 400m long. The structure enables seafaring vessels with storage capacities of some 33,000 tonnes to dock, in order to load cargo & bulk materials, before setting sail. For this reason the Quays ability to function is vital to the client. Over time the Quay had deteriorated significantly in many locations pivotal to the clients operations. Main Beams which support rail mounted crane loaders were in a state of disrepair which required specialist attention, and consideration for the clients ongoing operations.
APA Concrete Repairs Ltd were chosen as the Principal Contractor to undertake an intensive programme of concrete repairs and protective coatings to enhance the Quay for years to come, allowing the Clients valuable operations to continue during the construction phase, and for years after. APA’s ability to undertake all aspects of the specialist works ‘in-house’ was an attractive prospect to the Client.
