Provide Firm Ground for Reliable Access and Maintenance
Neoloy® Geocell stabilizes soil for reliable access over any terrain to erect and maintain power lines, cell towers, storage yards and electrical substations.
Electric, gas and water utilities need reliable access roads through soft, wet soils to install equipment and service roads to maintain it. Heavy vehicles often traverse mountains, valleys and streams, and environmental preserves, while working platforms are need to erect transmission lines, pumping and electrical substations or storage yards over problematic soils.
The Neoloy Solution
This is where the innovative Neoloy Geocell 3D mechanical stabilization solution comes in. They were designed for challenges faced by utilities – cost-effective but tougher than the ground for access for any size vehicle over any South African terrain. Neoloy Geocells provide strong, long-term soil stabilization and reinforcement of unpaved gravel roads on weak soils that require little maintenance.
This enables the transport and erection of transmission for power companies or cellular towers for mobile network operators. Neoloy stabilized gravel yards are suitable for electrical substations as their low conductivity increases operator safety. Neoloy Geocell stabilization solutions are also ideal for water, waste or energy pipeline construction.
The recognized engineering strength and certified long-term durability of Neoloy Geocells provide engineering benefits in terms of load distribution and stabilized road pavements. The combined high elastic stiffness, tensile strength and creep resistance of the Neoloy Geocells guarantees that the Neoloy solution will last for any project lifespan. Coupled with proven smart engineering methods PRS can optimize the required performance for a low cost solution for any utility.
- Create a semi-rigid “mattress” to better distribute heavy loads
- Increased bearing capacity enables a 50% or more reduction in pavement thickness
- Simple logistics, fast, all-weather installation
- Lower construction costs by reducing amount of infill by up to 70%
- Reduce construction costs by utilizing locally available soils (e.g, sand)
- Prolong life-cycle, reducing cost of repairs and maintenance
- Reduce aggregate, hauling and placement, reduces carbon footprint
- Enable more sustainable construction and maintenance of transmission facilities.
- Prolonged life-cycle, reducing need for repairs, maintenance and rehabilitation
