At the end of 2011 Subtech was awarded the NEC3 contract for the provision of scour protection to all 15 of the Pier 1 and Pier 2 container terminal berths in the Port of Durban. The provision of the rock scour protection is required to withstand the propeller and bow thruster wash forces that occur during the berthing and un-berthing of ships. The existing scour protection had been eroded and the subsequent depressions in the sea bed were undermining the quay walls.
