Railways

Subsidence caused by weak soil slows down trains and is also a great safety risk.

URETEK solutions can be used to stabilise railway embankments, and re-level subsided train platforms, buildings and railway structures. The interference for the train traffic is minimal, as no excavation work is needed and no dust, mud or water comes from the repair work. In addition, the tracks remain intact, thus saving in repair times and money spent.

The expansive geopolymer can be used to strengthen even large areas at once, and, if necessary, work can also be carried out at night. Subsided structures can be supported and lifted quickly, and a vast majority of the projects have been resolved within a day or two. Train services can be continued immediately after the repair.

The equipment used for carrying out the projects are small, so URETEK installers can work effortlessly in hard to reach places.
