TRM Piling Systems on road to success in South Africa
In summer 2017 a further piling project could be realised in South Africa. This time the mission was the foundation of 38 Transmission towers with a height up to 60 m. Special challenges with this task were the difficult soil conditions, as we had to deal with various different layers such as soft dune sand or rocky surface ground.
For the realization of this foundation 860 grouted TRM 118 piles DN 270 have been used. In order to guarantee a tensile force of about 600 kN additional steel reinforcing bars have been installed.
Although we had to deal with lots of challenges during this project, we managed to finalize it together with our partner ESKOM in October 2017.
