Avoid landslides while reducing labor and logistical costs by installing HydroBlox on a steep slope.
HydroBlox HydroPlanks have been dually successful in both intercepting groundwater from cut profiles and hillsides as well as eliminating erosion along those same hillsides.
Previously having used large amounts of aggregate, traditional drainage systems used in the oil and gas industry required a difficult transport of these heavy materials. Conversely, HydroPlanks are easily moved to a site on pallets and can be placed in by hand, installed vertically or horizontally.
What was once a major challenge, switching to HydroPlanks lightweight and sturdy structure resolves all bank stabilization difficulties.
The high cost of addressing bank stabilization is a thing of the past. Previous methods required a laborious process and a lengthy installation. What’s even worse, within the gas and oil industry, costs related to clean-up of pipeline failures could possibly exceed millions of dollars each time an incident occurs.
If you are faced with potential dangers due to the type of terrain surrounding your site, HydroBlox has the unsurpassed solution. Many major US oil and gas line engineers have already implemented HydroBlox and the system is working for them. The advantages are numerous:
- Minimized risk of both landslides and soil erosion
- Damaged land is restored
- Reduced construction time
- Easy to transport due to the compact, lightweight design
- Eliminates the need for materials such as aggregate, gravel, fabric barriers and fittings
- No need for excavating large trenches
Additionally, HydroBlox planks are simply placed into drainage trenches. As a result, the ground disturbance is significantly reduced, and there is no need to implement large-scale earth removal or excavation. A HydroBlox project will allow you to scale down your labor force as there is no need for bulldozers or other large equipment, increasing safety and productivity.
