TenCate Mirafi® HP Subgrade Stabilization - Long Beach Port, California USA

The Port of Long Beach is the second busiest container seaport in United States. To meet constantly growing demand to handle cargo form Asia it was necessary to expand container terminal capacity.

This project consisted of building a new wharf at Per G to expand the international Transportation Service Container Terminal as part of the Long Beach Mega Terminal Development Plan, and consolidate and redevelop existing Piers G and J to accommodate growing cargo volumes to year 2020.

The design of this project initially began 30 years ago as a landfill operation for Pier G226. The landfill operation included the placement of hydraulic fill dredged from the harbor. The fill area was contained by a shoreline rock dyke embankment and a soil surcharge was placed over the hydraulic fill to prepare the area for future development.
