Silo Upgrades To Food Factory, Co Down - June and August 2008

A food factory required an upgrade to an existing silo. To facilitate this the base of the silo had additional piles added, in close proximity to the perimeter of the existing base and pipelines. Due to the fragility of the piping a low vibration piling method was required. A requirement our Ductile Cast Iron Piling fitted perfectly.

  • 12No 118mm Ductile Cast Iron piles to 500kn SWL
  • Piles 9-11m long
  • Main Contractor - Martin & Hamilton
  • Engineer -Taylor & Boyd

A new silo was also required inside the existing factory and here our zero spoil 219mm Bottom driven mini piles were used as a low vibration, low dust solution was required as the factory remained in production throughout the works.
