RADIX Screw Piles are supporting tonnes of renewable energy projects
Partners, Red Leaf Group, are taking advantage of RADIX Screw Piles to secure renewable energy projects across the UK and significantly reduce programme times.
Bespoke galvanised platforms were designed, manufactured, and installed by Red Leaf Group, with each 12m platform holding up to 10 tonnes of equipment.
Delivered in a turnkey solution and with the efficiency benefits of our screw pile foundations, Red Leaf Group completed the project in just seven days, cutting the project’s programme length by 60% compared to the carbon-heavy and weather-dependent alternative of concrete.

Screw Piles for transformers
In addition to the various battery energy storage systems and solar arrays Red Leaf Group has delivered, their expert teams have completed the installation of specialist foundations on RADIX Screw Piles for a 60-tonne transformer, allowing for its connection within the tight programme of work.
We supplied the 15 RADIX PRO RF220 114mm Screw Piles that were specified for the project following load-testing and structural calculations, which Red Leaf Group installed without delay to provide robust foundations for the bespoke structural steel platform and transformer to be secured.
RADIX Screw Piles have allowed us to cut clients’ programme lengths by 60% in most cases and more in others, also avoiding costly delays due to temperamental weather conditions. It is clear that the industry recognises the significant impact using screw piles can have on their project delivery times and consequently how quickly they can start to see a return on their investment. We’re excited to be growing so quickly in the UK, and be expanding into new markets overseas.
As well as being an efficient foundation solution, our screw piles offer a low-carbon alternative to concrete, with less than 50% of the embodied carbon in steel screw piles compared to a comparable concrete base.
With 10% of the world’s carbon emissions coming from cement production, the RADIX screw pile range is saving more than time and money. They’re changing the foundations of construction and positively impacting our environment.
