USACE:  O-Pile KING 140' long sections at GICC West Closure Complex

That project featured the first use of spiral welded pipes on a USACE job with 54” diameter pipe: 54”OD x .875” wall thickness featuring O-Pile system with WOF/WOM Connectors in 140' in length and a total of 172 O-Pile King sections.  Domestic readily available pipes were used to speed up the project delivery time. 

The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway West Closure Complex is a part of the New Orleans Drainage System; it consists of a navigable floodgate, a pumping stationflood wallssluice gatesforeshore protection, and an earthen levee. The complex was designed to reduce risk for residences and businesses in the project area from a storm surge associated with a tropical event, with an intensity that has a one percent chance of occurring in any given year. This project was operated for the first time on August 29, 2012, in response to Hurricane Isaac.[1]
