Case Study: Safety


Excessive vessel wakes can cause millions of dollars in damage to piers, ships, and other resources at docking facilities throughout a typical port or marine terminal. They also can cause serious – and even fatal – injuries, especially in the case of dock-related construction projects that involve large numbers of personnel and dangerous equipment. For this large Houston-based refinery, these projects are a frequent requirement.

Houston Refinery

The Challenge

The company regularly implements improvements at its refinery operations, including extensions, and upgrades. They also have rehabilitation of mooring structures, fendering systems, cranes, hose handling, dockside facilities, as well as walkways and approachways. The company needed a way to protect its dock workers and equipment from wake-related risks.
