For over 40 years Platipus has been the market leader in the design, manufacture and supply of Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®). They are renowned for providing some of the most innovative and economical anchoring solutions for a wide range of utility applications and infrastructure including buoyancy control, renewable energy and power distribution.
Typical applications for Platipus Anchors include buoyancy control of both small and large diameter pipelines and below-ground SuDS attenuation systems. They can be used to secure ground mounted and floating solar parks, and off-grid stand-alone PV applications. Additionally, retro-fit anchor systems are available to quickly stabilise arrays where traditional foundation solutions have failed or are failing.
With the increasing need for renewable energy, the UK’s electricity distribution network requires constant upgrading and refurbishment. Platipus has designed a range of standard anchors for low voltage (LV) and high voltage (HV) distribution applications including electricity poles and stays, power line crossings, emergency restoration and general maintenance.
Unlike other solutions the Platipus anchor system requires no grout. It creates minimal disturbance of the soil during installation, can be proof tested to an exact holding capacity and made fully operational in just a few minutes. As an end bearing mechanical anchor, Platipus offers an environmentally friendly option for low-carbon anchoring.
