Pet Coke Retaining Wall
BFP manufactures treated wood panels for petroleum byproduct storage facility
Southwest Louisiana is a home to multiple petrochemical refineries. These refineries process crude oil into multiple products, including petroleum coke. The coke product is stored at the Port of Lake Charles before being shipped to consumers across the world. The Port recently requested bids to construct a retaining wall to help store more pet coke on-site.
One contractor contacted Bayou Forest Products for advice on an efficient system for constructing the wooden wall. Our solution was a a system of 10"x40" panels, constructed from 10"x10" SYP treated timbers, selected to meet engineer-approved design values for strength and durability. These timbers were sized and precision end-trimmed so that each panel would line up to be placed in the H-Beam columns comprising the wall. In addition, each timber was CCA treated to protect the panels against decay from moisture. The panels were delivered to the jobsite and easily installed. Bayou Forest Product's solution ultimately provided the contractor with a cost-effective, efficient soluition for meeting its customer's needs.
