Anchor and Foundation Storm Restoration

Rebuilding after the Storm

Rising water can damage or weaken existing transmission line and substation structure foundations. CHANCE® helical piles can be installed in almost any type of terrain including, flood plains, glacial till, sand, swamps and bogs. Helical piles provide a logical solution where soft soil conditions will not support heavy installation equipment. The use of lighter installation equipment also lowers overall mobilization costs
