Continuing McConnell Dowell’s legacy of delivering award-winning marine solutions internationally  for almost 60 years, the team recently celebrated the installation of the first tubular piles for Port Nelson’s new wharf deck.

The first of the 48, 762mm dia tubular piles have been installed and when complete, these piles will support the new 100m long wharf deck will enable the Port to attract larger 260 to 270 metre vessels and 300 metre cruise vessels. The piles are being driven using an IHC S 200 piling hammer which arrived earlier this month from Singapore.

We are pleased to be helping deliver this important infrastructure for Port Nelson’s Main Wharf North, growing the regional economy and create a legacy that will benefit the local the import and export sectors.

The project is scheduled for completion in late 2020.


Permanent Tubular Piles Installation starts at Port Nelson Main Wharf Redevelopment.
