Oil Rig Servicing Facility
Marystown, NL

February 1986

Project Cost:
$9.6 M

The wharf is an “L” shaped structure designed to provide berthing for two 25,000 tonne semi-submersible oil drilling rigs at one time as well as service boats. Alternative designs were completed in precast concrete caissons and steel pipe piles anchored in bedrock. Work consisted of development of a 5 acre site and access road, construction of the “L” shaped wharf using precast concrete cribs in water depths of 15 metres and provision of mechanical and electrical services from the service building through service trenches to the wharf. A service building was constructed complete with heavy duty overhead cranes for fabrication of steel sub-assemblies and or the repair and maintenance of semi-submersible oil rig components.
