Ports and Construction Work

Ports & Container Yards

A port is a facility where ships can dock and transfer people or cargo to or from land. Port locations are selected to optimize access to land and navigable water for commercial purposes and for shelter from wind and waves. Often breakwaters are required to be constructed to provide such shelters. Ports with deep water are rare and it is essential to carry out capital dredging, followed by maintenance dredging. Deep waters to handle larger economical ships of higher capacity and larger drafts.

Ground Improvement

Strata solutions for ground improvement are very versatile and can be designed and optimized for specific site challenges. They can be designed for very heavy loads and reduce differential settlements by a large margin thereby reducing operational costs and economise the subgrade design for the container yard.

Access Roads

Access roads leading to a port are generally not well maintained and have low subgrade soil. Poor access roads lead to lower efficiency, increase in the operational cost and reduced turn around times for dump vehicles. Strata ground improvement solutions help in improving the bearing capacity of sub grades, reduce differential settlements, are easy and rapid to construct, can be engineered for site specific challenges and can make use of locally available materials.

StrataGrid™ biaxial (PP) works on the principles of interlocking of particles and behaves like a 2D rigid mat. This product can be used for moderate ground improvement challenges.

StrataWeb® is very effective and feasible in cases where the subgrade is very soft or the loads are very high. As it confines the infilled material it provides a stiff base layer for the access road. StrataWeb® facilitates the use of various kinds of infill materials such as construction debris, riprap, recycled asphalt pavement etc.
