This project was for the demonstration of the second generation ELCAS system for US Navy. McLean was contracted to coordinate with the ELCAS system’s designer to demonstration that the new generation ELCAS system could be deployed within 72 hours. This project was performed on a vacant area of the beach located within the Little Creek Amphibious Naval Base in Norfolk, Virginia. All the components and equipment to construct the pier had to be delivered by water a vacant beach area where the pier was constructed.
ELCAS(M) is an expeditionary pier used to bridge the surf zone, providing an interface between lighterage, cargo vessels and the beach. Used in many exercises, and now in a war operation supporting Joint Logistics Over the Shore, ELCAS(M) is meant to support large offloads in areas where no pier facilities exist, or in the case of Camp Patriot, where facilities or scheduling of movement need to be enhanced with additional resources.
