Carnival Cruise Pier Rehabilitation

Carnival Cruise Pier
Project Overview: 
McLaren provided engineering services for the rehabilitation of an existing mooring dolphin and cruise ship docking facility located in Cozumel, Mexico. The mooring dolphin was struck by a docking vessel, and immediate damage was visible to the fender system and mooring dolphin. In-depth underwater investigations revealed that scour around the footings also compromised the structural integrity of the dolphin. It was determined that the ensuing scour was the result of new azipod thruster technology.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren’s role was to provide professional engineering support services for the successful rehabilitation of the mooring dolphin. Repair schematics and specifications were issued to address the fender damage and restore the condition of the mooring dolphin. Repair recommendations were made to address the scour problems at the footings. Repairs were accomplished by using prestressed anchor tie rods, which extended through the top of the deck and were grouted in place. McLaren provided inspections, analyses, assessments, recommendations, and estimated repair costs in the form of a Summary Letter Report.
