Construction of steel sheet pile wall for slopestabilization in Hürth
The gravity wall on Gennerstrasse in Hürth was to be replaced by a sheet pile wall clad with concrete L-profiles in the spring of 2018. We took on all of the technical planning of the sheet pile wall for the construction firm in charge of executing the project and delivered the necessary materials. A total of 54 metric tons of tkL 604 steel sheet pile sections measuring six to 9.5 meters were used.
The construction project was implemented in sections, i.e., one section at a time of the existing concrete wall was taken down and the steel sheet piling was put in its place. Due to the historical buildings in the neighborhood, we pre-drilled the sections and then drove them into the ground using vibration. We manufactured the required radius at a road intersection with seven construction piles made in-house.
The project was scheduled with four weeks allocated for the manufacture of the materials. Due to our tailored logistics concept and powerful machinery, we actually managed to complete the work in just 18 days.
