TorcSill has a proven track record in foundation construction in major plant facilities. Torcsill helical pile technology is a no-spoils and often a no-excavation solution that is well-suited to applications in congested and limited access areas. The piles are rotated into the earth, saving nearby foundations from potential damage resulting from traditional impact installation methods.
For existing facilities and greenfield applications we provide unparalleled schedule improvements through TorcSill technology, which can reduce or eliminate concrete in most foundation applications.
Transmission and Distribution
Electrical transmission structures are frequently installed over some of the most forbidding terrain on Earth, must remain stable and reliable for years and be able to support ever-increasing loads imposed by capacity upgrades.
TorcSills offer increased safety, reduced schedule risk and mitigation of logistical problems faced when deploying concrete to remote or inaccessible locations.
TorcSills are ideal for transformer foundations. The high bearing capacity of TorcSills can allow a small number of high-strength components to replace the monolithic concrete foundations that are typically used for transformer support.
Using TorcSills as a foundation for replacement transmission structures can eliminate the hazard of placing rebar cages for poured concrete caissons. Since TorcSills can be manufactured in safe lengths, under many circumstances lines can remain energized* while installation takes place maintaining the minimum approach distance.
