When Aberdeen Marine Ltd were awarded the contract to protect 6 piles on the Eriskay Causeway Bridge in the Western Isles, they suggested the use of the SeaShield 2000FD™ system as an alternative to the specified system.
They submitted details on the technical merits of the system and the benefits in using this tried and tested system to the Western Isles Council who agreed to the change in the specification.
Despite the challenges of the remote location and inclement weather conditions, Aberdeen Marine Ltd completed the application during the winter months.
SeaShield 2000FD is a heavy duty robust system which provides protection against corrosion on Marine Piles. It consists of Denso Paste S105™, Denso Marine Piling Tape™ and a HDPE Jacket which is applied with pneumatic tensioning equipment and secures with stainless steel bolts.
