Precast Sea Wall Weathers Massive Storm

Redi-Rock International, Charlevoix, MI 49720, USA

In late 2013, a new harbor sea wall made of precast modular blocks (PMBs) was put to the test in Rhyl, North Wales. For days, a storm battered the United Kingdom and caused a 60 year high tidal surge and January wave heights were close to 100 year level. The harbor wall was built as part of the Foryd Harbor Enhancement Project, with the goal of deepening the river channel, enlarging the marina, and improving the park area along the river. While this massive storm caused damage to many other structures in the area, designers were happy to see that the harbor wall performed excellently, even though it was not designed as a primary sea defense structure.
