PK Line Refurbishment
Design and build contract for new piled foundations for replacement transmission tower PK132 (L4M D2 E3).
Due to the presence of poor ground conditions at site, a bespoke designed solution
was required for a new transmission tower foundation, with minimal disruptive
access. The approved solution utilised 4no. 10m long 610dia steel driven piles
with internally fabricated shear rings, allowing the new tower stubs to be directly
concreted into the tops of the piles.
All works were completed in 7 days with no requirement of piling mats, or roadways
required for access. Works were successfully delivered utilising internal resources
with plant and transport being provided solely by Readypower Rail Services.
