As the last accropode of the bulwark restoration project at Kuantan Port, the largest on Malaysia's east coast, was installed and passed inspection, marking completion of the project's main section.
China Communications Construction Company Limited (CCCC) participated in the project which includes demolition and restoration of some sections of the original 3,600-meter bulwark as well as new construction.
About 60,000 cubic meters of unqualified building stone were replaced by 340,000 cubic meters of better material and more than 30,000 accropode blocks were installed in the section.
An underwater automatic unhook system was developed to make the accropodes' installation easier, which helped to set a construction record of installation of 218 such blocks per day.
A main supporting facility at Kuantan Port, the bulwark will effectively resist waves and protect the port's infrastructure. In addition, it will greatly improve its goods handling capacity and promote the development of the Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park, only five kilometers away.
