scour protection at cruise terminal

Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal Berth1

Brevard County, Florida, USA

When Port Canaveral, the second busiest cruise embarkation port in the world, undertook the significant expansion of its complex of terminals with a new Terminal 1, the Port Canaveral Authority hired CH2M Hill for the design of waterfront berth. The new cruise terminal complex handles the largest cruise ships currently sailing as well as the 6000-passenger vessels in design.

Orion Marine Construction was awarded the $31.4 million contract for the construction of the 1400 ft long berth in February 2014. Synthetex HYDROTEX® Articulating Block (AB) and Uniform Section (US) fabric formed concrete scour protection mattresses were selected and installed for the waterfront construction of Terminal Berth 1.
