Port of Alaska Pile Jackets

November , 2018

Over the past several years, Global has been contracted by the Port of Alaska in Anchorage to install pile jackets to repair pilings at their terminal. 30-foot tide swings, zero underwater visibility and a short working season make the job even more challenging. The piles marked for repair are cleaned with a remotely controlled pile cleaning machine, then steel jackets are secured around the piling. Once bolted up, the annular space is filled with concrete to complete the repair. In this video, we take a look at the Global’s work on the project, and what it takes to get the job done right.
