Following CGR’s involvement in the initial container terminal development at Mundra, CGR was invited to be part of the team for the Terminal 2 project.
This project involved a new 450 metre long wharf, which was a continuation of the container terminal wharf. The wharf was designed for both container quay cranes and general cargo, designed for 150,000DWT or 8,000TEU ships berthing on the front side and 10,000 DWT ships berthing on the rear side of the wharf.
CGR’s involvement in this project was initially for the owner, Gujarat Adani Port Limited (GAPL) to prepare the documents for a Design and Construct tender for the project. CGR also carried out a preliminary design of the wharf for GAPL and prepared a Bill of Quantities for the project.
With GAPL’s consent, CGR was then involved as the designer for an Indian construction company that tendered for the work. The wharf is located in a highly active earthquake area and the design of the wharf had to consider the lateral earthquake loads which were critical to the analysis. Another critical element of the design considered by CGR was the joint between the anchored diaphragm wall structure that formed the existing container wharf and the new freestanding piled wharf.
Our Client's tender was successful and the works were completed in 2006.
