Post-tensioning is an active structural reinforcement technique that can be used to optimize a dam’s design and stability.
Post-tensioning allows significant savings due to shorter construction times and a reduction in the amount of construction materials required.
The incorporation of post-tensioning also gives the flexibility to design optimized structures that include continuous monitoring of the dam’s heavy-duty permanent anchorages using tension cells.
VSL leverages 60 years of relevant experience and access to very mature systems that have been tested to international standards. The company’s portfolio includes the use of very heavy permanent anchorages for major and iconic structures.
VSL can provide you with a complete solution that includes design together with the systems, technologies and operational services needed for successful integration of post-tensioning into the structure.
Our design engineering optimizes the structure through the integration of a post-tensioned permanent anchorage system that includes monitoring and protection against corrosion.
We also offer expertise in construction engineering to optimize resources and meet construction deadlines.
All operations are carried out in accordance with international standards, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
