Cintec helpes complete restoration of the Port of Quebec

The Port of Quebec

(French: Port de
Quebec) is an inland port
located in Quebec City,
Quebec, Canada. it is the
oldest port in Quebec
after the Port of Montreal.

Owned by the
Government of Canada
and operated by the Quebec Port Authority, the port has
been in existence since the early 17th Century.
In the 19th century, the Port of Quebec was one of the
most important in the world. It played a major role in the
development of both the city and of Canada. In 1863, more
than 1,600 ships went through the port, transporting almost
25,000 sailors. It was during this era that the shipbuilding
industry grew considerably in Quebec City.

In the 20th century, the dredging of the Saint Lawrence
River between Quebec City and Montreal moved major
port activities upstream. Today cruise traffic has replaced much of the former freight traffic.

In the summer of 2019 Cintec was contacted by Jhon Páez, Senior Structural Engineer Ports,
Marine and Coastal of WSP Global Inc - an international engineering firm with over 50,000
employees in some 500 offices serving in 40 countries worldwide.

The requirement was for vertical strengthening in two areas of Quai 5-14N of the Port of
Quebec as shown in top photos. As determined, anchors were to be a 1 1/4" diameter, #30M
2205 stainless steel reinforcing bar with overall anchor lengths of 25 feet (7.5M) to 30 feet (9 M)
long. 48 anchors were fitted with 4 inch (100 mm) sock and installed by use of a crane in drilled
cored holes of matching diameter. Placement completed by injection of Presstec © grout.
