Well-pointing in the Province of BC
Today’s pictures come are thanks to the team in British Columbia lead under the direction of Caillan Charpentier the VP Operations at NCS Fluid Handling Systems. Caillan has an elite team of Project Managers and coordinators that work tirelessly to deliver on safety, quality and client care. They team has managed through some pretty hot and dry weather this season and with so many team members to properly recognize we felt a shout out to all would be best.
This picture shows the operations of installation of well-points in a dewatering systems using NEX-003 the 3rd in the 5 rig dewatering augers NCS Fluid Handling Systems owns or operates. As so adequately put on a previous posted NCS project when the manager of another well-point dewatering project arrived on site it was explained to the spread boss that he operated Unit NEX-005 which was #5 of 5 of the Moses dewatering rigs. The spread boss had to ask, “why Moses” and Brad replied, “cause when we are done, we part the waters and make it dry to cross”.
Having an in-house team of engineers allows the NCS Fluid Handling Systems team to provide a full compliment of dewatering options as well as water treatment appropriate for the conditions and discharge permits. Any professional engineer who deals with soils should have good knowledge about the soil-water relationship and our team provides our clients that level of confidence. This is where NCS Fluid Handling Systems has gained customer trust and a solid reputation for delivering dry excavations. NCS Fluid Handling Systems designers consider ground hydrology with an emphasize on sub-surface flow characteristics and geological soil type and conditions. NCS Fluid Handling Systems designers and technical products representative work to ensure that our customers are aware of benefits derived from reduction of ground water pressure and respective increase in soil stability and strength. The net results are improved in slope stability and the required increase in bearing capacity which is required for the long-term utilization of such assets as water and energy pipelines.
