Road construction and roadways in pipeline construction


Safe roadways in pipeline construction: Heavy construction machinery such as cranes and excavators are often used in overhead line construction and underground line construction projects. Very high loads often occur here, which require load-bearing substrates. Our plastic ground protection plates create a base that is gentle on the ground during maintenance and repair work on the construction of water, sewage, gas, electricity and telecommunications lines and antennas. The heavy-duty flooring provides maximum load-bearing capacity, load distribution and ground adhesion.



Why mobile construction roads in pipeline construction

Mobile construction roads can be used, on the one hand, as temporary access routes for nacelles weighing several tons and, on the other hand, as storage areas for oversized and heavy components of power transmission line pylons. A well thought-out ground protection solution creates safe framework and working conditions for these and similar functions. The construction of 110kv, 120kv and 400kv overhead lines and cable lines also requires a supporting structure. Plastic ground cover plates create stable, site areas and as well as optimum access routes for heavy construction machinery.

Ground protection as a secure basis for network expansion

Before electricity reaches the socket, it usually has to travel long distances. Along the power lines, i.e. the transmission routes from the energy producers to the consumers, countless meter-high overhead lines are strung together. To ensure that these can be built and maintained safely and thus guarantee the expansion of the network, heavy transports are used. Soil protection serves as a safe basis for this.

Possible applications of plastic plates

With our plastic sheets, stable temporary paths can be quickly constructed on the often muddy and sloping terrain, on which the heavy construction vehicles and equipment can travel safely. Major efforts are needed to ensure a nationwide power network in Germany, because in many southern regions in particular the local power supply is no longer sufficient to provide households and businesses with a reliable supply of electricity. New power lines have to be built to transport the electricity from the north, where it is mostly generated in the form of wind energy with the help of wind turbines and wind power plants, to the south. In addition, far-reaching modernization measures and maintenance work on the existing power grid are planned as part of the energy transition.

In line construction, our driving plates are used in the following areas, among others:

  • Construction of wind farms and wind turbines
  • Laying of fiber optic cables for high-speed Internet access
  • Construction of power lines or overhead lines for the transmission of electricity
  • In pipeline construction – for example, in pipeline construction for the transport of gas
  • In power engineering in general (fluid power machines: turbines, pumps, etc.)


Mobile roadway made of driving plates

Construction machinery such as cranes and excavators are in constant use to transport the components needed for the high-voltage lines. In order to ensure safe framework and working conditions during network expansion – just as during pipeline construction and the laying of fiber optics – load-bearing roadways are indispensable. Our plastic floor plates are an ideal solution for this: They create a load-bearing ground cover that can also be driven over by heavy-duty vehicles and construction machinery without any problems – whether for the construction of power lines, wind turbines or similarly heavy work. Even on moist or sloping ground, safe driving routes can be formed quickly and easily. The robust working platforms thus make a major contribution to efficient operations. They prevent vehicles and machinery from being damaged and provide safe access to overhead lines for pedestrians. In addition, the plastic panels also protect the ground from lasting damage that can occur during work.

Advantages of our roadway panels

When working on power lines as well as on power generation facilities such as wind turbines, it is of utmost importance to use non-conductive floor coverings for access. The plastic driving plates meet this criterion and also offer a whole range of other advantages:

  • Partially loadable with over 200 tons
  • Easy to transport and easy to lay
  • Resource-efficient transport of 600m2 heavy-duty panels per truck
  • Extreme weight reduction in terms of transportation compared to steel
  • Resistant to temperature fluctuations and weather conditions
  • Flexible and flexurally rigid at the same time
  • Unbreakable and durable
  • Form non-slip roadways and crane parking areas
  • Resistant to acids and chemicals
  • Protect soils from damage caused by the works
  • Reduction of recultivation work and soil preparation

Roadways for the construction of power lines can be formed without much effort. High-capacity overhead lines are usually located in meadows and fields – but it is not uncommon for the ground on field paths to be uneven and muddy. These are difficult conditions for the safe and trouble-free use of machines and heavily loaded vehicles. With plastic roadway plates, a stable and safe surface can be created in no time at all, on which vehicles can drive and maneuver without any problems. This means there is no risk of vehicles or machines getting stuck in the ground or sinking into the subsoil. A safe working environment is essential, especially when working on power lines, otherwise serious accidents can quickly occur.

Safe on uneven surfaces

Heavy-duty mats can be used to widen paths and extend curves. In addition, the plastic plates also enable heavy construction machinery to drive comfortably. With our various heavy-duty plastic plates, you can quickly and easily build safe driveways on any terrain in overhead line construction. We have suitable solutions for every requirement.

Heavy duty plate Maximum

Meets the highest demands with its load capacity of up to 200 tons. Ideally suited for the construction of driveways for pipeline construction and as a fastening for the installation areas of cranes. Available in various sizes, the plate can be laid in no time using a forklift or loading crane. Ideal for the use of heavy vehicles and machinery.

Heavy duty plate Double Max

The 6-meter-long heavy-duty plate is particularly suitable for the construction of mobile construction roads, temporary driveways and simple access roads for pipeline construction. The robust and unbreakable plastic plate reliably protects the subsoil, reduces corridor damage and prevents the construction machine from getting stuck and sinking in.

Heavy duty plate Giant

The heavy-duty plate Giant with structure on both sides offers an optimal ratio of stiffness as well as breaking strength over a wide temperature range. The slab can be loaded with more than 200 tons and is suitable for many applications due to its above-average thickness of 100 mm. Especially in water-soaked peat soils, these heavy-duty slabs are suitable for the construction of a construction road.

Matching accessories

For building safe driveways along a power line, connecting the heavy duty panel is helpful. All our plastic heavy-duty panels can be coupled together easily and quickly. The connection of the individual roadway panels thus performs a homogeneous and slip-proof roadway or working platform.
