Silver Run-Artificial Island

American Pile and Foundation was awarded 3 portions of this project, which included an underground cable transmission line emanating from the Salem Nuclear Facility, NJ across the Delaware River, into a substation in Middletown, DE. American Pile and Foundation installed 20 pipe piles which supported a precast fender protection system, placed over 700 cubic yards of concrete, including rebar, that was placed to form the topping slab and closure pours. Next, a plastic timber fender system was placed around the structure for impact protection. Due to the proximity to the Delaware River, multiple barges, a crane, and tug assist were required to transport material.
