Pin Pile Foundation Design

Taylor Energy- Pin Pile Foundation Design

Containing spills is no easy task. When the soils around the spill are working against you, it can be almost impossible. Taylor Energy tapped into the proven experience that Delmar provides when designing unique solution tools.

Delmar was contracted to design a foundation solution to hold the containment dome over a long period of time in these extremely soft soils.

In addition to pin pile foundation design, installation methodology was developed and two installation aids were designed, a dome connection mechanism and pin pile driver. Together with the foundation, Delmar provided a turn-key solution for this unique situation.
