The SPG will host a separate series of talks focussing on aspects of steel piling, speakers secured so far include:

David Coyle, Volker Ground Engineering
Using steel to deliver greater productivity: Dover Western Dock Revival.

DWDR is the single biggest investment ever undertaken by the Port of Dover with c.£250m committed for its delivery to transform the waterfront and economic fortunes of Dover. David will describe how the use of steel piling and innovative installation techniques helped fastrack one of the largest port development projects to be constructed in the UK.

Dieseko, Resonator Driving

Dieseko will present a new vibrationless steel piling installation method that uses a high frequency piston cylinder that operates at between 100 and 180 Hz (6000 to 10000 rpm) to oscillate the steel pile at its natural frequency or ‘resonate’ making the pile act like a spring that drives itself without any vibration.

Graham Gedge, Arup
Corrosion assessment for piles in roadside environments.

Graham is Arup’s global materials skills leader providing specialist consulting services in corrosion and corrosion control. He has recently completed a study for Highways England to undertake an analysis of the corrosion allowance for sheet piles in different road side environments. He will present and discuss his study and recommendations to Highways England.

Stephen McAuley, McLaughlin & Harvey
William Quinn, Quinn Piling
RD Pile Wall Peterhead Harbour.

The Peterhead Harbour project entails the strengthening and deepening of the port, land reclamation with revetment, widening of the harbour entrance, demolition works and improved services. McLaughlin & Harvey developed an innovative approach with the first use in the UK of an RD steel piling solution developed in Scandinavia. Piling contractor for the project was Quinn Piling Ltd from Ireland. The RD® pile wall installed in Peterhead harbour consisted of 16.5kms of RD piles and there was in total 30kms of SSAB’s RM/RF interlocks welded on the piles. Work has commenced in the middle of October 2016 and completed in April 2018.

More speakers will be confirmed soon.
