GEWI® Anchors protect modern Waste Disposal Facility in South Korea from Uplift: The Pyeongtaek Eco Center
In the seaport city of Pyeongtaek in northwestern South Korea, the Eco Center is being built. It is a modern facility with a combustible waste fuel facility for domestic waste, a recycling center, a bio gas facility for organic waste, a sewage plant and a boiler for producing electricity and hot water.
The facility is being built on an area of 58,066m² and will be the largest environmentally friendly facility in South Korea once completed. In order not to affect the adjacent residential areas, the complete facility is constructed underground. On the surface, different recreational facilities such as a swimming pool, a baseball park and a gym are being built.
248 double corrosion protected (DCP), 63.5mm Ø, 10-11m long permanent GEWI® Anchors were used to protect the facility from uplift. They were especially suitable for this project due to their excellent durability in aggressive environments and due to their fast installation time.
