Port Canaveral Pile Fabrication // July 2014
The fabrication division of MJW Consolidated is fabricating a total of 151 piles for the new cruise ship berth at Port Canaveral FL. The project is being executed in cooperation with Pop's Painting, MJW's special coatings partner. Each 95 foot long pile weighing 45,700 pounds is fabricated by welding together two 60” diameter, 3/4” wall spiral wound pipes that are spun using the custom fitted rotators that assist the welders in applying the high strength weld seam. Each pile is also fitted with two 75 foot long sheet-pile connector bars that are seal welded to its sides.
At job completion, our crew will have handled 6.9 million pounds of steel and applied 69,000 feet of welds- approximately 50 times the height of the Empire State Building.
