These pipe cradles were manufactured for wrapping them around HDPE pipes. They serve the purpose of increasing the weight and thus preventing them from floating, when there is no water filled in the pipes but they are immersed in water.

As you can see the precast cradles are quite precise, the moulds used were accurate and the cradles contained embedded threaded inserts, which could take up bolts to tighten them around the HDPE pipelines.

Precast concrete can be shaped as you want and there can be threaded inserts, quite precisely placed, and with choice of high performance concrete or even the ultra-high-performance concrete, it can be used where earlier steel was considered the only option.
