Water Pipeline Protection at new Peterhead Quay

Posted: Tuesday 7th December 2010

Westminster Dredging and R J Mcleod were recently awarded the contract for a scheme with a value of £27.7m to form a new multi-purpose quay in Peterhead Harbour which will provide a 200 metre long, all weather, deepwater berth at the Smith Embankment.

As part of the scheme new pipelines, which will carry water to a range of vessels using the new quay, required to be protected from the corrosive marine environment. To provide the necessary protection Winn & Coales local Denso stockists, Burdens (Aberdeen) supplied R J Mcleod with Denso Paste S105, Denso Tape and due to the harsh environment an outerwrap of Densoclad 50 Tape. Denso mastic strips were also used to protect the bearings of the water pumps on top of the 14 piles that the new quay deck is sitting on.

Apart from the additional anti-corrosion protection, Densoclad 50 Tape’s extremely tough pvc backing combined with polymer bitumen adhesive ensures resistance to impact and mechanical abrasion likely to be met with on a working quayside.
