North cargo pier upgrades complete at Port Canaveral

Port Canaveral has completed, ahead of schedule, an eight-month modernisation project to renovate its north cargo piers 1 and 2.

Construction included new concrete decking, marine fenders, bollards and concrete curbs. 

The reconstruction effort involved removing and replacing approximately 4,120m2 of concrete pier deck, repairing existing concrete pile caps, and applying a cathodic protection system, which prolongs the lifespan of the steel reinforcement. 

The existing concrete pier deck was repaired by mechanically removing and replacing an additional 1,545m2 of concrete topping, installing new marine fenders, bollards and concrete curbs. 

New potable water piping, water station manifolds and concrete enclosures were also installed.
