Oxen Cove Jetty

The £2.25m Oxen Jetty Project meets the growing demand for new infrastructure to support the sustainable shellfish sector of the fishing industry in Brixham.

The project, funded by Torbay Council and the European Maritime Fisheries Fund, provides additional landing capacity to ease vessel and catch landing congestion. Wide enough for a 40t articulated vehicle, the jetty accommodates up to two vessels alongside simultaneously. This allows for shellfish to be landed directly for immediate onward distribution, considerably streamlining the logistics of distribution.

TDA’s Engineering Team outline-designed, procured, project managed, and supervised the scheme to completion, working with principal contractor Teignmouth Marine Services (TMS). TMS carried out the detailed design and constructed the jetty, installing 16 744mm diameter 18m long steel piles, rock-socketed 3m into rock head below marine sediments. Shore-end rock armour was temporarily removed to facilitate permanent pile installation works which were undertaken using a combination of a 104ft drilling rig set upon a jack-up barge and a 160t crane sitting on a floating barge. The jetty deck comprised precast concrete units up to 14t placed as cross beams on to pairs of piles, planks then bridging between cross beams. The deck was finished in a reinforced in situ concrete slab linking the precast elements.
