Featured Project

The $US4.5B Shell Nanhai petrochemicals project will be the largest plant of its kind in the world. The high water table under the massive 110m x 10m, 6-metre deep discharge basin applies considerable hydrostatic uplift on the base of the basin.

Instant Screw Piling was called upon to devise a foundation that coped with pile tension loans of 350kN.

Development

The Main Benefits of Screw Piling Include:


University testing and development:


A great deal of University and site testing has taken place in the theoretical and practical development of Instant Screw Piles. Theoretical models have been developed for sand, clay and rock strata and calibrated back to field results for the performance of Instant Screw Piles. Relationships between soil strength parameters, strata density, installation torque and load bearing capacity have been established which provide a quality control method for utilisation in the field. This has resulted in the greatest engineering and consumer confidence in Instant Screw Piles.
