Ground Freezing

Ground Freezing

Advanced ground freezing techniques combined with a wealth of experience in a range of civil and environmental applications.

CTCI is one of just a handful of companies in Asia with the technical skills and experience to execute ground freezing. Ground freezing is a proven technology for any underground construction work that requires soil to be reliably water sealed and strengthened. 

CTCI’s ground freezing process is safe, environmentally friendly, and delivers uniformly excellent performance. It also allows the ground to recover easily once the freezing process is complete. We utilize 2D-FEM numerical analysis that can effectively simulate freezing performance: predicting the exact timing of the formation of frozen soil, and enabling our teams to assess and manage refrigeration units and temperature requirements.

Our teams are customer-focused and offer a complete ground freezing service from assessing owners’ requirements and project needs to recommending suitable freezing methods, construction methodology and monitoring. Brine freezing is typically used for large, longer-term applications. Liquid nitrogen freezing is rapid and effectively for small or emergency situations. We are capable of both freezing technology.

Applications for ground freezing technology:
CTCI has extensive practical experience in vertical and horizontal freezing, jet grouting, and excavation in frozen soil. Our ground freezing team has overcome the challenge of working with conditions and environments including:
