Buckeye Ship Dock #1 Scour Protection

Project Description:

The Buckeye Ship Dock #1 Scour Protect project in the Port of Corpus Christi, TX required placing Rip-Rap rock as scour protection in 45 feet of water along about 600 feet of the Ship Dock’s sheet pile wall. Commercial Divers placed and secured a geotextile fabric on the harbor bottom. Then a 12” size Rip Rap stone was place as a “bedding stone” with a crane and clamshell bucket. Finally, a 24” size Rip Rap stone was placed with a crane and clamshell bucket as the final top layer. Russell Marine purchased, stockpiled, loaded and placed about 6,150 tons of Rip Rap stone. The project entailed working around the Client’s dynamic Oil Dock #1 shipping schedule.
