The SmartPile ™ Principle
Take a walk around most marinas in B.C. and you will notice that amongst flotillas of multi-million-dollar yachts, are rather scruffy looking piles. They may be the old, creosoted wood variety or rusty steel edifices. Painting them doesn’t really work because the paint simply gets rubbed off with every tide change. The good news is that Alpha Anchor and Pile Ltd (AA&P) have pioneered the installation of helical piles and anchors in a marine environment. From this, the concept of “smart” piles has been developed. So now marina owners have the opportunity to smarten up their piles. Captain Peter Sachs, President of AA&P, takes up the story: “After we installed a polyethylene cover with a white cap over one of our new piles, a dockhand said that it looked like the pile was wearing a tuxedo. That is when I thought of the concept ‘smart pile’.”
