Using Helical Piles for Transmission Line Structure Foundations
John Dunn, Almita Pilings
Saif Mohamed, Almita Pilings

This presentation will educate on helical pile deep foundation technology, as applied to various transmission and distribution structures. Solutions for lattice towers, monopoles, direct embed structures and substations will be addressed. Helical pile engineering design criteria will be reviewed, as well as corrosion mitigation, load testing and pull testing for design proof and optimization. Construction methodology, including environmental and rapid installation advantages to be highlighted along with specific electric power project examples. Question and answer period to follow.
