Misener to Build Docks at Port Canaveral

Misener Marine Construction has been awarded an $18 million contract for two new berths at Port Canaveral, Florida. Misener is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Orion Marine Group, who announced the contract on May 5. One berth is for the construction of a cruise pier 600 feet long and 65 feet wide consisting of a backfilled steel pile combi-wall, concrete encapsulated bulkhead with conventional and soil anchor tieback systems dredged to a depth of 35 feet. The new cruise pier is expected to begin mooring vessels in the third quarter of 2012. The second berth is for a cargo pier 900 feet long and 100 feet wide comprising a concrete-pile-supported relieving platform with a steel pile combi-wall bulkhead and conventional tieback system, and dredged to a depth of 35 feet.

The project has two more additional options that if awarded would increase the job to approximately $22 million overall.

Construction is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2011 and last approximately 24 months.
