An inspection cofferdam is typically 2 meters wide and can be built up according the requested inspection depth. This cofferdam fits on the back of a truck and can be transported as such. An inspection of a quay wall in detail will be executed with reference setups (decided in a joint decision between the client and Acotec) where the cofferdam will be placed. This will generally be on the locations where damage can be seen such as holing or even a subsidence of the quay.
