In March 2008 an operating company based in Vietnam asked CIS to provide them with seven drive shoes for their upcoming conductor driving campaign after their normal supplier was not able to provide them with drive shoes of a suitable quality. The operator was planning to drive 36” x 1” WT conductors so CIS proposed to use 36” x 1.5” WT Standard Drive Shoes to strengthen the toe of the conductor and to reduce the internal skin friction resulting in an easier drive. CIS manufactured seven 36” x 1.5” WT drive shoes at our UK base and then shipped these over to Singapore where they were welded on to the conductor shoe joints. The drive shoes were supplied on time and the subsequent driving operation went according to plan and target penetration depths were successfully achieved.
