Powerline Tower Replacement in Wales

Wales Powerline Tower Replacement, U.K.


MegaDeck® HD+ Composite Mats Keep Reinstatement Costs to Minimum After a Powerline Tower Replacement Project

When access was needed through a farmer’s field to replace a powerline tower, a utility access company in Wales, U.K. chose MegaDeck HD+ for its temporary roadway solution. The safety of the crew and equipment over extremely soft ground conditions and keeping reinstatement costs to a minimum were among top priorities for the project.

To access the powerline tower, the setup crew of four installed 250 linear meters of MegaDeck HD+, which were interconnected to form a temporary road with turning pads at each end. A liner was placed under the mats to allow for additional mud suppression over the soft ground as well as extra drainage in anticipation of wet, rainy days. MegaDeck HD+ composite mats allowed utility crews to safely cross the farm field with no damage to the ground, keeping reinstatement costs to a minimum.

Customer Challenges:

  • Safe accessway for crew, heavy machinery, and equipment over extremely soft ground conditions with standing water
  • A temporary road that had a flexible layout to allow for turning/passing lanes
  • Reinstatement cost concerns
