Electricity pylon, San Vito di Leguzzano, Italy
Geotub enabled the reconstruction of the foundations of an electricity pylon in San Vito di Leguzzano in an easy and simple way. The pylon was built with a 220/132 kV capacity to supply electricity to the new railway station in Malo, in the province of Vicenza, Veneto.
The semicircular structure of Geotub and the easy locking of its 2 shells with handles, made Geotub the ideal solution, as the presence of the pylon did not allow formwork installation from above.
In addition, Geotub provided other benefits including:
- Easy manual handling, due to its weight of only 6.5 kg per piece,
- Due to its modularity, it did not have to be adapted on site,
- Rentability, which made it possible to optimize construction costs.
