GROUND SCREW FOUNDATION FOR POWER TRANSMISSION TOWERS
The use of ground screws for power transmission towers reduces time of foundation construction.
Ground screws for power transmission towers can be mounted on swampy and water-saturated soils at any time of the year and in all weather conditions.
The power transmission tower has four bearing racks. Ground screws are set under each of the bearing racks and thus form a screw bush. A metal grillage is mounted in the installed screws with a support joint for mounting the rack. Thanks to the screw bushes high reliability and stability of the structure is achieved.
Advantages of the pile and screw base for support of the high voltage line:
- speed of finishing, installation of ground screws does not take much time and is carried out many times faster than the installation of the classical foundation;
- installation of ground screws can be made even in frozen soil, which enables the installation all the seasons;
- installing power transmission towers is possible in swamps since screws for the towers are not subject to corrosion and are not sensitive to groundwater;
- construction of the ground screw foundation is possible in urban and cramped conditions. At the same time, the existing underground communications do not interfere with this installation.
The company PILLAR designs foundations for power transmission towers, prepares the foundation drawings and calculates the foundation for the towers. Drawing design of a foundation is also included in our services.
