SeaShield™ Systems Provide Long-Term Protection for Jetty Piles at Ullapool Harbour
In 2020, Shearwater Marine Services were awarded a contract to install protection for jetty piles at Ullapool Harbour in the Scottish Highlands, on behalf of The Ullapool Harbour Trust.
As consulting engineers on the project, Wallace Stone specified the use of SeaShield™ Systems supplied by Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd to protect the jetty piles. SeaShield Systems have an extensive history of providing long-term corrosion protection to marine structures.
Shearwater Marine Services used a combination of the SeaShield 2000FD™ and SeaShield 70™ Systems on the piles and various supporting crossbeams on the structure.
SeaShield 2000FD consists of Denso Paste S105™, Denso Marine Piling Tape™ and an outer HDPE jacket, which is hydraulically tensioned before being secured with stainless steel fixings.
The SeaShield 70 System was used to protect the crossbeams and is an excellent option on areas where piles have obstructions. This system consists of Denso Paste S105™, Denso Profiling Mastic™, Denso Marine Piling Tape™ and Denso Glass Outerwrap 70™.
