Steel Pole & Tower Restoration

Whether secured by a concrete foundation or direct-buried in soil or water, Osmose provides engineered repair solutions for damaged steel towers and poles.  At a fraction of the cost of replacement, these repair solutions restore original strength and can even increase capacity when greater strength is required.

Structural Steel Repair

Osmose structural steel repair is designed and implemented to American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 10 specifications. Benefits of repairs include:

  • Corrosion rehabilitation to restore original strength
  • Structure is temporarily supported and lines remain in service
  • Poles and towers receive structural updates

Transmission Pole Restoration Solution

The cross-sectional geometry at every pole elevation is unique due to specific characteristics such as pole taper and installation embedment depth. In many cases, common repair techniques are not properly engineered to consider this unique pole geometry at the localized corrosion, leading to fabrication errors or improper installation. Faulty repairs can lead to pole restoration failure and subsequently pose unacceptable risks to structural reliability and safety.

Part of the OsmoPlate® Utility Pole Restoration System, the NeighborPlateTM solution overcomes issues common in other pole repairs and provides an unparalleled, true pole restoration system. NeighborPlates are designed to be adaptable to varying pole geometry and have the unique ability to accommodate variations in pole characteristics to enable an exact fit-up to the pole.

The NeighborPlate system is engineered to restore strength and fully encase the deteriorated area of the pole.

  • Universal restoration system for tapered polygonal steel poles
  • Restores strength loss from corrosion and some other types of pole damage
  • Capable of restoring pole design variations, including direct-embedded and base plate-mounted poles
  • Restoration can be performed without service interruption
