A new and unique patented ground stabilization technology from URETEK. PowerPile is suitable for treating subsidence and strengthening very weak ground. Narrow diameter piles incorporating an expandable casing are inserted underground via small, up to 50mm, drill holes. A highly expansive geopolymer is injected inside the casing creating a pile of up to 400 mm in diameter, which hardens almost immediately. URETEK PowerPile eliminates need for costly and disruptive traditional underpinning/piling, results in minimal mess and disruption.

Geopolymer is injected into a flexible and expanding PowerPile sleeve, through a small 30-50 mm wide hole, creating a pillar. This method slows down or stops the sag completely. PowerPile compacts the surrounding soil.
