Onshore and Offshore Piling

Onshore and Offshore Piling in Kenya and East Africa.

  • Bored Cast In Situ Piles
  • Driven Piles - Steel Tubular Piles
  • Soldier Piles and Lagging
  • Sand Compaction Piles
  • King Piles
  • Sheet Piles - Cofferdams (Temporary & Permanent)
  • Driven Pre-cast Piles

  • Mini Piling
  • Micro Piles

Drilling and hammering large diameter piles asks for very special skills, especially with regard to offshore conditions, weather, currents, and the like. Mooring and berthing dolphins are up to 40 m long and may have a diameter of 3 m while monopile foundations for offshore wind farms can go upto 85m in length and 8m in diameter. Cranes, frames, casing, hammering and drilling equipment must be suitable for the size and the weight of every single pile. The structures are used to construct jetties, mooring facilities, bridges and offshore wind farms.

Soft soil improvement techniques strengthen the ground bearing capacity of a particular area and makes it fit for installation of heavy cranes, terminals, warehouses, and other infrastructure on top of it. It is an alternative and often more economical approach for piling and other foundation works. Techniques depend on soil conditions and vary from vibro compaction, over vibro stone columns and soil mixing, to grouting and mixing with stabilizing additives.

SECO is able to execute all piling works for quay walls, jetties and similar marine foundation structures with its own equipment, being it sheet piles or profiles, combi-walls and steel piles with diameter up to 2,5 to 3,5 m or concrete piles up to 50x50 cm, all up to 50m length.  

Core Products & Services, include:

Bored Cast In Situ Piles

Bored Piles are non-displacement piles capable of carrying large vertical loads and are particularly efficient and effective when boring into cohesive soils. Used in foundations of industrial complexes, bridges and flyovers.

Driven Piles - Steel Tubular Piles

Driven Piles are of various shape make and sizes, these consist precast concrete, round steel casings, tubular steel casings, steel H sections, composite piles and timber piles. Used in a variety of soil conditions.

Soldier Piles and Lagging

Soldier piles and lagging retains soil, using vertical steel piles with horizontal lagging. Whether an open or low headroom site, SECO has the equipment and experience to design and construct the optimal solution. Supports excavations.

Sand Compaction Piles

Sand compaction piles are one of the potential methods for improving ground stability, preventing liquefaction, reducing settlement and similar applications. This method involves driving a hollow steel pipe into the ground.

King Piles

Contiguous/Secant Pile Wall pile techniques are very similar in concept with bored piles however can be completed by bored pile method or continuous flight auger method.

Sheet Piles - Cofferdams (Temporary & Permanent)

Retaining system comprising of overlapping sections of uniform steel sheeting. Used for the construction of retaining walls, temporary shoring, cofferdams, docks, jetties, bridge abutments, flood & ocean protection, cut-off walls & more.

Driven Pre-cast Piles

Driven Piles are of various shape make and sizes, these consist precast concrete, round steel casings, tubular steel casings, steel H sections, composite piles and timber piles. Used in a variety of soil conditions.

Ductile Iron Piles

Ductile Iron Piles are often used as an alternative to drilled micropiles, driven H-piles or steel pipe piles, helical piles and augercast piles to save foundation costs and accelerate project schedules.

Mini Piling

Mini Piling is a low vibration restricted access system. Ideally suited for small extensions or refurbishment work.

Micro Piles

They can be installed in soil, rock, cobbles and boulders, through man-made obstructions or in areas with high water tables to depths in excess of 60 metres (200 ft.)
