    Removable Ground Anchors

    Removable Ground Anchors Recent innovation of “removable” ground anchor system. Steel cables are doubles up and threaded over a roller at the anchor end. Once de-stressed, they can be pulled out. 1 rig can achieve…

    • Drill 30 m shaft 7.0 hrs
    • Install strands/setup anchor 6.0 hrs
    • Grout in strands 2.0 hrs
    • Stressing can be done 4 – 7 days after grouting.

     

      Usually at 3 m horizontal centres and can only be worked on with 5 – 6 m spacings. So a hit and miss method must be adopted, giving a significant programme constraint.
