FSI Installed a series of MacLean-Dixie P35 pipe piles at Con Edison’s East 6th Street substation in New York to support a new transformer unit. The project required FSI to perform a load test to 50 kips with a net settlement of .126″. The foundation was dug to ten feet and the piles were installed to 10,500 ft*lbs ranging from 50-60 feet in depth. All pile locations were dug by hand to a depth of 4 feet prior to pile installation. The piles were installed within a 2’x 2′ footprint. The East 6th Street Substation serves the entire East Village, home to roughly 50,000 residents. The new transformer replaces the original (built in the 1950s) with a larger design that will allow the substation to deliver more electricity to the neighborhood.
