Dover Western Dock Revival (DWDR) was a £100+ million regeneration development by the Port of Dover, which sees the dynamic transformation of the waterfront, designed to attract a host of shops, bars and restaurants with Dover’s unique backdrop of harbour, cliffs and castle, as well as a new cargo terminal and distribution centre
As part of this development programme, Qualter Hall secured the major contract through the Principal Contractor VSBW, a joint venture between Volker Stevin and Boskalis Westminster, for the design, manufacture, delivery, site installation and commissioning of the Bascule Bridge, Sector Gates, Mitre Gates and Stoplogs.
Stoplogs were to be provided at each end of the WDNA (Western Dock Navigation Access) and at a mid-lock position, upstream of the mitre gates, to enable future maintenance of the WDNA and the associated gates. The Dock end & Marina Stop Logs were utilised during the Construction phase to enable our Client and the ultimately the end user to build the Navigation Channel under the constraints of the Marina and Dock water levels, the Dock Stop Logs were installed and left during construction for 1 year without any problematic leakage from the existing Dover Wellington Dock.
