R.C.C. Caissons were constructed, partly on the slipway and partly afloat,sunk on rubble foundation and the extension of the trestles carrying cooling water systems. The R.C.C. box Caisson for the salt water jetty pumpsstation was built under dry conditions on the slipway and later launched and towed. The tidal range in the course of the work varied between 17 feet to 2 feet. The Caisson Sinking was achieved through four 300 mm dia. sluice valves. R.C.C. trestle pipe supports were constructed on steel piles of welded box section, both vertical and raked. Solid cold grout application was given on the piles.
