PMEC (China Harbour)
Concrete Mattress

Pan Mediterranean Engineering Company (PMEC), a unit of China Harbour, is undertaking construction of the new Hadarom Port Project in the Port of Ashdod, Israel. The works include; a 600m extension of the existing breakwater, a 1,500m new breakwater, and construction of two new quays, Quay 27 and Quay 28.

With then increasing size of modern container vessels, underkeel clearance can be very small, and propeller flows very high. To prevent propeller scour and protect the important ground material supporting the quay structure, the berth area is to be protected with 300mm thickness concrete mattress scour protection.
