For the mooring, berthing, repair and maintenance of ships, boats, yachts and other craft built special hydraulic structures – berths and piers. Berth is a specially equipped place in the coastal zone, and the pier – a construction which is put on the waters of the basin.
In most cases, the construction of berths and piers also includes a range of activities to strengthen the coastline and equipped the territorial of embankment.
Currently, the scope of operation of such hydro technical constructions is significantly expanded. Berths and pontoons are increasingly used for recreation, swimming and fishing.
Type of berth
The berths and piers are divided into two categories accordingly to the principle of their construction and type of construction elements used:
The choice of method is determined by the object’s purpose and location, natural conditions, topography, soil type, original specifications.
Pile berths and piers
For the construction of pile structures is a used the permanent supporting structure from the metal, concrete or reinforced concrete. Selection of the used material and the dimensions of the piles are carried out taking into account the depth and sea bed characteristics of the coastal area, the estimated wave and wind loads, type of floating objects which are used it.
Construction of piers on the basis of the pontoons is more mobile and less costly option. Pontoon berth quickly mounted, if necessary, it can be easily dismantled and moved to a new location or to expand and change its configuration by adding new elements.
Repair and Maintenance
For ensuring the safe operation of the berths and piers it requires their constant maintenance and periodic repairs. Repair of the berth can include study of the condition of the structures, the performance of underwater engineering, repair and shore protection works.
