Marine Structure Projects

Xypex products play a key role in the waterproofing and protection of concrete against water penetration, chloride ion attack, cracking, carbonation, sulphate attack, Alkali Aggregate Reaction and freeze/thaw damage.

Project Listing
  • Al Khalifa Port and Industrial Zone

    Dubai, United Arab Emirates

    Xypex was used in the construction of this 20 million TEU port to waterproof the pile heads, using Xypex Concentrate material.


  • Anderson Point Port Facility

    Port Hedland, Australia

    This project will mine and export through the Anderson Point Port Facility, 45 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of Iron ore to markets in Asia. Xypex Admix C-Series is spec’d into all concrete elements of the berthing facility, to provide enduring protection for this vital asset. As of June 2011, Berths 1 & 2 are complete, with Berth 3 underway.


  • Australian Marine Complex

    Perth, Australia

    Approximately 1,000 m3 of precast product was treated with Xypex Admix C-5000 at a grade of 50 MPa. Besides enhancing durability, benefits of Xypex Admix C-5000 include ease of application into the concrete mix, workability with vertical pours and the long term benefits of the Xypex crystalline process. 
  • Bremerton Tunnel

    Bremerton, Washington, USA

    The tunnel was to be built on a high water table and its entire length needed waterproofing; shoring of the walls would interfere with any barrier-type system; considerable rebar work was needed on the floor, thus raising the risk of damaging a membrane; and the ceiling would be covered with a 10-ft.-deep backfill making a membrane impractical to repair. Xypex Admix was the answer to all these concerns. 

  • Busselton Jetty

    Busselton, Australia

    Xypex Admix C-5000 was specified for all concrete used in the refurbishment as protection of concrete used in a marine environment.
  • Conrad Maldives Resort & Spa

    Rangali Island, Maldives

    As durability and protection of the steel reinforcing was a major consideration, 165 kg of Xypex Admix C-1000 NF combined with MS 600 (Microsilica) was specified to provide this protection.
  • Dique de Carena Dry Dock

    Puerto Belgrano, Argentina

    Soletanche Bachy, renowned worldwide for their expertise in geotechnical and civil engineering, was retained as the engineering firm and contractor on this dry dock project. Xypex Concentrate and Patch'n Plug were specified and used to rehabilitate the concrete structure and will again be used on two smaller docks later in the year.
  • Esplanade Theatres on The Bay


    Xypex admixture treated concrete replaced the membrane assembly used in the first phase. During construction of the first phase Xypex was used extensively to fix leaking experienced in the membrane based secant wall assembly. Through the use of Xypex products and techniques the first phase was fully waterproofed.
  • Flinders Ports Berth 8 Outer Harbour Grain Wharf

    Adelaide, Australia

    Xypex Admix C-1000 NF was specified as the most suitable product to effectively protect the concrete structure from the harsh marine environment. Pile plugs, pile caps, rear ramp support walls, wharf beams, deck and ramps were all dosed with Admix C-1000 NF at a rate of 3.9 kg per meter.
  • Heuston Railway Station Tank Farm


    This petroleum storage facility, used by the railway, is situated adjacent to the Liffey River. Protection from contamination was a major environmental concern. Xypex Admix C-1000 NF was dosed at 1% to the PC content of the concrete used in the construction of two ‘bund tanks’ for secondary containment purposes.
