Pioneering Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) for 40 Years

This interesting project using Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) to secure gabion baskets on a riverbank in Powys, Wales. The gabion wall was being undermined from scouring, putting the houses on the riverbank at risk should it fail.

The gabions were stabilised using Platipus S8 Stealth Anchors and the scour was repaired. All works required permits from Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru / Natural Resources Wales to ensure that an environmentally sound solution was provided. Installation was completed by Kaymac Marine & Civil Engineering Ltd.
