Berth Protection and Scour Prevention

Challenge

Ports are typically used as the point of loading and export of a mine’s mineral. A common challenge at the quayside is the wave and/or propeller scour of the sea bed adjacent to the quay wall and/or sloping jetty.

Solution

Incomat® mattresses were developed by HUESKER engineers to provide a safe and cost-effective solution for berth and scour protection at ports. Incomat mats are deployed underwater and pump filled with highly fluid concrete to provide a scour protection apron

Advantages

  • Creates robust interlocking concrete slabs underwater
  • No rolling or sliding displacement
  • Resists jet flows up to 12.5m/s
  • Reduced dredging and wall span height due to low mattress thickness (compared to traditional rock solutions)
