Electrical & Hydro Utility Markets

Layfield works with many utilities to provide products for new and retrofit construction projects. Layfield provides secondary containment liners for oil-cooled transformers, storage pad liners for PCB contaminated soils and old transformer storage, geotextiles and geogrids for road construction, and upstream face liners for earth fill dams.

Our feature products include geotextiles and geogrids for the construction of access roads for wind farms. Wind farms are a growing segment of the electrical utility market and geotextiles and geogrids are often used to create access road with the least amount of disturbance to the local environment. We also feature our vertical wick drain installation for foundation drainage in earth fill dams. Vertical wick drains are placed before dam construction to provide a drainage path and help with the consolidation of foundation soils beneath a dam. Layfield has also provided upstream face liners for earthen dams that were having seepage problems. An upstream face liner is placed and backfilled to provide waterproofing of dams that are showing excessive seepage.
