Papa Westray Pier Repair

Pier repair in Orkney.


Orkney Island Council




Orkney Isles




Malakoff were awarded the contract to carry out pier repair works to the Papa Westray Pier for Orkney Islands Council.

Works included mobilisation of equipment and materials to a remote island location in Orkney.


Initially setup of site facilities/dive equipment was required, then the first dive commenced to powerwash area & check measurements, Malakoff divers then had to mark & drill holes for rebar, confirm measurements for shutter, grout in re-bar & tie cross bars.

Onshore operatives made up shutters, conducted lifting operations and rigging to lower & check shutter panels – Divers then re-entered the water to fit & secure shutters, during this phase of the diving operation, the divers also templated the piles to get angles & enable the pier side manufacture of the brackets. The piles were then bored to fit the fabricated top brackets & bolt assembly, final checks were made and concrete was poured. Site was fully cleared after works including seabed.

β€œIn the short time I was on site I was very impressed with your employees in Papa Westray. Your plant set up on site was of an extremely high standard all aspects of health and safety were met if not exceeded, I fully look forward to dealing with you and your company again.”
