Pumpstations, Sheet Piling & Dewatering

What is sheet piling?

Sheet piles are sections of steel sheet with interlocking edges which, when driven into the ground, provide ground retention. We install our sheet piles using our MOVAX© or ICE 'resonance-free' Vibro hammer. The advantage of the resonance-free system is reduced vibration and increased installation efficiency. We can install sheet piles from 1 to 12 metres in length.

Texco has a large stock of sheets available, allowing for installation at short notice. Our hire charges are based on a daily rate. Sheet piles can be used for temporary retaining or can remain in place as a semi-permanent wall.

What is dewatering?

Texco has 40 years’ experience working with deep excavations and solving dewatering issues. We have a wide range of options and equipment available to meet the needs of our clients, from cranes and drill rigs, to simple excavator dug sumps.

The site ground conditions will determine the most suitable dewatering solution. For large gravel areas, monitoring wells are suitable, while more sandy ground materials may be better suited to a well-pointed system.

Texco has a vast amount of experience with the installation and extraction of sheet piles in a range of different ground conditions.
