Testconsult's TDR2 pile testing system goes Arctic.
Testconsult has been awarded the contract to supply the Russian Federal State Power Company (FGCUES) with 30 TDR2 pile integrity testing systems, to assess the condition and integrity of transmission line tower foundations, across the Russian electricity network grid.
FGCUES operate power grid equipment in 73 regions of the Russian Federation, covering over 13.6 million square km of land and a population of 140 million people. The company is responsible for running 121 thousand km of electricity transmission lines and 797 sub-stations with a total capacity of more than 286,000 MVA.
Testconsult has been working with their Russian distributor, JSC Panatest, to develop a special TDR2-ARCTIC; a rugged Russian language system suitable for use in temperatures as low as -20°C and in the harsh Russian winters. The system includes impedance and simulation software modules to assess foundation shape below ground.
The TDR2 is one of the world’s best-selling pile integrity testing systems. It was the world’s first fully portable, battery powered system capable of carrying out transient dynamic response analysis of piled foundations, and it is now in use in over 70 countries around the world.
