Pipeline construction and integrity projects are often encounter extreme weather and ground conditions, making for challenging worksites and potential project delays.
The sheer size of the worksites and equipment require thoughtful planning to reduce the environmental impact.
Sterling can help, with innovative ground protection and site access matting solutions that include worksite platforms, turning areas, passing lanes, walkways, and temporary roadways. Our TerraLam® 500 CLT mats are engineered with innovative cross-grain technology to withstand heavy equipment and last longer, while saving you money through faster installation and lower costs.
Sterling knows the pipeline industry from beginning to end, working on sites that have spanned hundreds of miles with varied ground conditions. From extreme weather to the most remote sites, we understand how delays happen — and help you prevent them.
Emergency maintenance doesn’t wait for fair weather. TerraLam mats can simplify access to remote pipeline sites, even in muddy, icy, or other difficult conditions.
Cranes and other equipment can compact soil and damage the ground during pipeline jobs. Sterling’s mats are designed to withstand the weight — saving restoration costs.
Pipeline maintenance sites are likely to be far from roads. Sterling will work with you to design the right access solution and build the access roads you need to reach the farthest sites.
Pipelines often run through farmland, which means that access roads can cause significant crop loss and soil compaction. Sterling routes temporary roads to minimize this damage and compaction, reducing restoration costs and crop payouts.
