LTS Mining & Civil was engaged to deliver the foundations for the transmission line connecting the power generated from the wind turbines to the feed the grid. This involved 100 + foundations ranging from 1.5m diameter up to 2.5m diameter up to 9m deep, in all kinds of strata including rock in excess of 150mpa, which required “peppering” with drill and blast rigs.
