Kinder Morgan Gateway Project


Date: 06/2014

Duration: 5 Days


This chemical facility uses large diameter piping systems to transfer its product from tanks and buildings. Supporting these heavy pipes is an issue with the FILL and soft layers that exist close to the surface. No vibrations and small confinement is an issue at the facility. Helical piles solve these issues.
