Mukona successfully completed geophysical gravity survey and pile testing for foundation design as part of the Ngonye Solar Park Project in Lusaka, Zambia

Client: Enel Green Power

Key Collaborations: Steffanutti Stocks Geotechnical Geofocus

Mukona carried out a geophysical survey across 54 hectares of land earmarked for the development of a new solar park, which is underlain by dolomite.


Key Facts: Gravity survey, lateral, compressive and tensile pile testing

The gravity survey delineated the depth to bedrock below the site and inferred shallow subsurface outcrops of dolomite.


Key Services Provided: Geotechnical Engineering

Pile load testing included installation and lateral, compression and tensile tests were performed for confirmation of pile foundation design.
