The South Carolina State Ports Authority contracted with Cape Romain to repair and upgrade the Wando Whelch Wharf facility in Mount Pleasant, SC. The existing wharf is 3,800' long by 143' wide and is being upgraded to handle the new larger cranes that SCSPA has purchased to offload the much larger "Post-Panamax" ships that can now traverse the widened Panama Canal. A 16' wide trough is demolished at each crane rail to allow 24-inch and 18-inch pre-stressed piles to be added directly below the stronger cap beams and new rails that the cranes will roll on. The trough and caps are stiffened with abundant additional reinforcing steel to disperse the heavier loads. New heavy fenders and bollards are also part of the upgrades. Cape Romain Contractors is now in the final (4th) phase of this project. WSP is the design Engineer of Record..
