Projects

Below are a selection of example projects that showcase the use of Sheet Pile LLC products. We are happy to share more detailed specs upon request.

Projects

PROJECT 1

Virginia US DOT Chespeake Bay & Tunnel

O-PILE INSTALLED THROUGH ROCK JETTY

See enclosed project specifications here. You can also see how a Combined King Pile system was replaced by an O-Pile 102-978. For further information, see full project description here and Wikipedia page here.

THE PROJECT

The Parallel Thimble Shoal Tunnel Project will construct a new two-lane tunnel under Thimble Shoal Channel. When complete, the new tunnel will carry two lanes of traffic southbound and the existing tunnel will carry two lanes of traffic northbound.

 

Construction Start (estimate): October 1, 2017

Construction Completion (estimate): 2024

 

THE CHALLENGE

Install a sheet pile wall in pure rock

 

THE SOLUTION

It is Mott MacDonald’s opinion that the 36-inch diameter O-Pile offers substantial improvement for movement control with very little additional steel over the length of the SOE walls, and as such we recommend a 36-inch O-Pile solution be deployed.

PROJECT 2

Maryland US DOT - 100% Melted & Manufactured in the USA

BUILT WITH LOCAL STEEL HATEM MEMORIAL BRIDGE IN NORTH­EAST MARYLAND

O-Pile cofferdams at the Hatem Memorial Bridge were driven into 90 ft of water and down to lengths of 131 ft.The O-Pile sections were spliced, at site, due to the length and lack of headroom under the existing bridge, many 9 foot sections were installed and butt welded to create a full length O-Pile.

The high bending strength and stiffness of a continuous pipe sheet pile system was preferred over other options to resist over 90 feet of water pressure and form a safe a excavation for the contractor.

WOM/WOF connectors, used with the O-Pile, provided the highest degree of tension and bending strength available to secure the pipe­ to­ pipe connection and ensure pile integrity after hard driving.
