Canal wall repaired by Stealth


VAN ELLE'S Restricted Access division was called in to install a contiguous bored pile retaining wall alongside the Erewash Canal at Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire for British Waterways.

The existing retaining wall was in such poor repair that access with a large rig was not possible. Instead its T8000 Stealth rig was used to install 52, 300mm diameter hollow stem augered piles to 9m depth behind the old wall which is to be taken down and rebuilt at a later date. Pile reinforcement cages were transported down the canal on a barge and were lifted into position using a barge-mounted crane.
