AFT Completes Container Terminal Upgrade Project in Mexico’s Pacific Coast Port of Manzanillo
Colima, Mexico: Contecon Manzanillo S.A. de C.V. (CMSA), the Mexican subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), undertook a capacity improvement program at the Port of Manzanillo in Mexico to expand Mexico’s gateway on the Pacific coast.
AFT, working with one of our long-standing Contractor clients based out of Panama, installed the new foundation piles for the dock. We performed construction geotechnical services during the test pile program and remained involved throughout the production pile installation to ensure all piles met the design requirements. AFT’s work lead by Engineer Carlos Quintana involved: pre-construction drivability analyses, extensive dynamic pile testing, driving criteria recommendations, production pile verification, and pile design and construction related consultation.
