Farringdon Tube Station – London (Construction)

Pipeline Protection Shotblasted and applied a Slip Coating system to the 813 & 1524mm Tubular Piles designed to provide ground support to construction work.

Piles were processed in close proximity to the Construction Site and taken into London during quiet times to avoid traffic congestion in the capital. Each Pile was coated with Primer then Bitumen Compound, PRACSLIP. This system has been proven to reduce the drag factor by up to 75% during the driving activity and therefore significantly reduce the size of plant required to complete this activity.
