Bio Energy Plant High Capacity Pile Load Testing

Hopewell, VA

General Contractor: Osage Bio Energy

In support of the foundation design process, Technical Foundations performed a high capacity load test of a 24" diameter, 75' deep auger cast pile. The test pile was loaded in compression to failure; which occurred at 900 tons. Technical Foundations designed and fabricated the high capacity test frame for this application. Following the successful load test, the auger cast pile solution was chosen and Technical Foundation installed over 500 piles for the construction of the plant.
