Breasting Plane Improvement 3

RT Group, Inc. (RTG) was retained by Dunellen, LLC to implement improvements to their breasting dolphins at the Wilkesbarre Pier in East Providence, Rhode Island.

The improvements included reinforcing an existing dolphin with new steel H-piles and installing two (2) new cell fenders to better absorb the estimated breasting energy.

In addition, an existing cell fender was removed and its support frame was modified to provide a more uniform breasting plane along the length of the pier.

As part of the project, RTG also designed and administered construction of additional repairs at the Pier. These repairs included the installation of a new timber and galvanized steel walkway and repairs to several tie backs that anchor a soldier pile and concrete panel wall. Breasting Plane Improvement 2
