Thyssen Geotechnical


Thyssen Geotechnical last month completed stabilisation of cliffs below Tenby High Street ( the A476) and the seafront promenade in south west Wales. The area has a long standing problem with soil erosion, exacerbated by particularly bad weather and heavy rain at the end of 2000 and beginning of 2001. Part of the cliffs failed in April 2001 and Pembrokeshire County Council decided to undertake remedial work. Thyssen's £70,000 contract was carried out using a drill rig in a manrider hanging from a 20t crane to install Dywidag R32 MAI soil nails.
