Construction of New Jetty
A new jetty in Qatar was constructed by MT Højgaard back in 2008.
In Doha, Qatar MT Højgaard has constructed a new jetty, which is 160 meters long, in a traditional way, by placing of sheet piles and afterwards concreting of the hammer and placing of accessories, such as bollards, fenders, ladders.
In addition to the works with the construction of jetty, a small revetment of approximately 2,000 m³ of stones, was constructed and approximately 60,000 m³ of materials were dredged in the harbour in order to reach the final level of -5,5 CD. Prior to the dredging, debris such as oldwrecks was removed from the seabed.
Existing jetty repaired
In another part of the Shipyard of Qatar Navigation, where the works were carried out, the existing jetty, 180 meters long, was repaired. The existing concrete was demolished in thickness of minimum 20 cm depending on the quality of the construction, and new reinforcement was placed prior to casting of new concrete. After concreting, accessories such as bollards, fenders, ladders were placed.
