FK Lowry Piling have successfully completed another Wind Turbine Project for German Client, Enercon. The £160,000 large diameter rotary bored piling scheme took place at Tanners Hall, near Crook Co.Durham.
FK Lowry Piling were sub-contracted to install 10 No. 880mm diameter Rotary Bored Piles to depths between 18m – 22m below piling platform leve over a two week period. Each Pile was installed with a full length cage of 10B20’s and B10@250mm c/c. Typical ground conditions consisted of Made Ground/Fill overlying loose granular fill consisting of Sandstone, Siltstone & Mudstone Cobbles & Boulders. A 3.5m rock socket was then formed in the weak highly weathered Mudstone bedrock.
