Anti-flood Mooring Piles at Vistulan Boulevards in Cracow
We installed 17 large-diameter tube piles designed as anti-flood mooring dolphins at Vistulan Boulevards (Bulwary Wiślane) in Cracow. The dolphins will be used for mooring inland ships as well as for flood management. The construction site was located in close proximity to Wawel Castle and the Vistula riverside, which is a popular recreational area for Cracovians. Due to the designed technology and long distances between piles, the project was a real challenge, since the piling rig had to be moved along the boulevards and the recreational area and river needed protection from being polluted with spoil. Owing to skillful organization, the project was completed successfully. It is worth to note that Aarsleff was the only company to offer to perform the works in such difficult conditions and sensitive location.
