After Installing the Cap-beam, the welding between the Cap-beam bottom plate and Pile top
shall be done using the same guide. The Guide will be removed in 2 halves as shown in sketch.
Alternatively, necessary working platforms can also be used for welding.

4.1.3.3 Driving of Marine Steel Piles using Travelling Unit from Bent 19

From Bent 19 to 102, the piles will be driven with the help of Crawler Crane mounted over the
Travelling unit with the help of hydraulic guides, Vibro hammer and Hydraulic hammer.

The Erection of the Travelling Unit is carried out from the Bent 1 once after the Land Piling and
its capbeam placing is over.

Alternatively, the erection of Travelling Unit can also be done from Bent 16 with the suitable
capacity crane that can assemble all the parts of the Travelling Unit and the Crawler Crane.

Please note in the following steps that the General Arrangement of the Travelling Unit has to be
updated and it is shown to give an idea of working.

For the Placement of Prestressed Longi Beams and Precast Roadway Slabs, EOT of 60MT
Capacity will be used which will be following the Travelling Unit as shown in the Sketch. All the
Longi beams and Roadway Slabs are laid using a Spreader Beam of 60MT SWL.

Once after the placing of Roadway Slabs by EOT, Grouting between the precast slabs shall be
carried out. No vehicle has to be allowed on the Roadway slabs until the QC clearance is
released.

After Swinging the Crane by 180 , the Capping Beam is passed through the guide frame (using
the passage between the Lifter and the Capping beam) and placing it on the hanging
arrangement provided in the guide frame. This activity is done prior to the Pile Driving because
later the pile obstructs the placement of capping beam with the guide frame arrangement.

An alternate solution of capping beam is also proposed at the end of Sequence.

Step 5: Transportation of Piles using Trailer and Dolly Arrangement

The transportation of the piles shall be done using the Trailer and the Dolly arrangement as
shown in the sketch. Before arranging for transportation, Engineer In-Charge of the Civil
Works of Roadway Slabs should intimate the Engineer In-Charge of the Piling Works
regarding the Clearance for using the Roadway.

JACKUP BARGE WITH HYDRAULIC GUIDES

Once the piles are pitched along the guide, initially it will start self penetrating into the
Seabed i.e., moving downwards into the Seabed due to its self weight. Once this activity stops
then the Crane will lift the Vibro hammer and fix it on the pile top. The driving operation of the
pile will commence with the help of Vibro-hammer. Once the pile shows resistance towards
being driven with the help of Vibro-hammer, the Vibro hammer will be replaced with hydraulic
hammer. The Piling operation will commence with the help of hydraulic hammer till the pile is
driven upto its desired founding level.

There are certain issues needs to be highlighted which are as follows:

• Due to the current speed and the tidal difference the piles needs to be pitched only during
the neap tides. There seems to be idling time as we need to wait for next neap tide before
pitching of the next pile. The same idling time has been considered in our calculation and
highlighted in our calculation of time cycle.

• Once the piles are driven they need to be braced immediately with the adjacent piles and the
same time also has been considered by us and will be highlighted in calculation of time
cycle.

• Jack-Up shifting is possible during high slack tide.

The above issues are considered for all the offshore structures.

The top elevation of tank of Jack-Up will be kept at an elevation taking into consideration of wave
height etc. The top elevation of tank of Jack-Up at Breasting dolphin will be kept at (+) 14.8 m.

4.2.3.2 Precast Slabs Installation

Once the temporary bracings are secured enough to take the load of the precast slab units, the
precast slab elements are erected / placed. The precast slab elements will be transported
through material pontoon from load out jetty.

THE ERECTION OF THE PRECAST ELEMENTS

Once the precast slab unit are placed then the wet joint between the precast elements will be
constructed.

WET JOINT

Once the wet joints are constructed the precast wall units are erected.

Alternatively, Precast Slabs / Walls together as U-Trough in parts are placed based on the lifting
capacity of the Crane.

PREPARATION OF INFILL CONCRETE

The reinforcement will be tied as per the bar bending schedule and after checking concrete will
be poured from the batching plant mounted over the barge.

4.2.3.3 Procedure for In-situ concreting

• Placement of Concrete
o The concrete shall be placed and compacted before initial setting of concrete
commences and should not be subsequently disturbed. Method of placing as described
above should be such as to prevent segregation. Maximum care shall be taken to avoid
displacement of reinforcement or movement of formwork.

o Formwork, reinforcement and blinding surface shall be sprinkled with water just prior to
placement of concrete. The area around the work shall be kept wet to the extent possible
to cool the surrounding air.

• Compaction of Concrete
o Vibration shall be applied uniformly to the entire concrete mass. The concrete should be
placed in layers not more than 150 mm high. The vibrator shall be moved from place to
place, and shall be applied at 500 to 600 mm centres for 10 to 30 seconds depending
upon consistency of the mix. Vibrator should be immersed through the entire depth of
freshly deposited concrete vertically or at a small inclination of not more than 100 to the
vertical to avoid flow of concrete due to vibration and consequent scope for segregation.
The vibrator should be allowed to penetrate the concrete under its own weight during
vibration. Vibrator shall be removed while still running from concrete gradually so that the
hole left by the vibrator closes fully without any air being trapped.
o Vibrator should be immersed through the entire depth of the freshly deposited concrete
and at least 100mm in to the previously vibrated layer, which must still be plastic. In this
manner, a plane of weakness at the junction of two layers can be avoided and monolithic
concrete with satisfactory bond between layers is obtained.
o The actual completion of compaction can be judged by the appearance of the surface of
the concrete, which should neither honeycombed nor contain an excess of mortar /
slurry.

• Leveling of Concrete
The leveling of concrete shall generally be done with screed vibrators /manual screed.
The leveling will be done manually wherever it will not be possible to do the leveling work
by screed. The top level of concrete shall be maintained and checked with leveling
instrument throughout the concreting process.

• Curing of Concrete
Immediately after compaction and surface finish, concrete shall be protected from
evaporation by means of wet (not dripping) Hessian cloth. Once the concrete has
attained some degree of hardening sufficient to withstand surface damage
(approximately 9 to 12 hours after mixing), moist curing shall commence. Exposed
surface of concrete shall be kept continuously in a wet condition by filling with water and
kept constantly wet for at least seven days from the day of placing concrete.
