Geopier is taking action in Sharkey County

Another great project for Geopier is taking place!

Goepier is participating in the construction of Rolling Fork Substation in Sharkey County. MS consisted of several upgrades to an existing substation to include transformer pads, high BUS supports for both triple and double feed lines, deadend structure for towers, and a control house. The compressive loads ranged from 60 to 256 kips with uplift demands of up to 20 kips. A total of 505 Impact® elements are being installed with depths ranging from 25 to 30 feet and 93 Ductile Iron Piles with depths of 65 feet. The subsurface conditions on the site consisted of very soft to stiff silty clay to a depth of about 40 to 50 feet transitioning into a medium dense silty sand.
