Aarsleff Ground Engineering has announced that it has invested in three new medium-sized piling rigs for its driven pile business to meet demand for work on restricted access sites and those with limited working space.
The first two of the rigs, supplied by ABI Equipment, will be delivered in October this year with the third following in 2017.
“These are high performance, highly specified and efficient machines, capable of operating on minimal platforms,” said Aarsleff general manager Kevin Hague. “This not only allows us to pile restricted access sites, but requiring minimal platforms, offers the potential for significant cost savings overall.
“Aarsleff has always had a strong presence in the residential and domestic housing sector, where access is typically restricted, and these ‘midi’ rigs increase our capability enormously. It also extends our ability to work on other complex commercial projects, as these too increasingly require specialist rigs or have space only for minimal platforms.”
