The stability of the old cantilever sheet pile wall of the access basin to the Kleinmachnow lock was at risk. A land side caused by the measured movement of the structure would engender major obstructions of the lock’s northern chamber. The existing old retaining wall was therefore replaced by an 111-m long sheet pile wall consisting of 15.5 to 16.5-m AZ 28 piles in steel grade S 355 GP. The Z-piles were installed with a hydraulic press to avoid noise and vibrations.
