The giant straddle cranes that load and unload cargo from the container ships at the Port of Oakland apply a fairly concentrated load along their wheel path. Over time, the wheel path area has settled, creating a hazard to crane operators, cargo, and all port workers. URETEK ICR and their affiliate EagleLIFT were called in to use their patented geopolymer technology to stabilize and lift the subgrade, restoring the wheel path to it's original elevation. Check out the video! URETEK ICR is a sponsor of GeoPrac.
