St Peter Port Rehabilitation Case Study
Guernsey is one of the main Channel Islands situated off the coast of Normandy and has a population of 65,000. The marine berths are in the main town of St Peter Port and are an essential part of the Island’s infrastructure. In order to ensure the berths were in good working condition and to maintain this important asset for the island, the port operators, the States of Guernsey, commissioned a review of Berths 4 and 6. It was recommended that as part of the overall berth refurbishment the reinforced concrete be repaired, an impressed current cathodic protection system installed to protect the reinforcement from corroding and the concrete encasement on the steel beams and columns removed and replaced.
