The two businesses have also announced an exclusive distributor agreement for the rental and direct sale of equipment in Germany, Austria and Denmark

The machine has already been deployed to a project in Ludwigshafen in Germany where it is working on driving 12m long sheet piles for a residential scheme.

The rig is fitted with sound-proofing technology, which Thyssenkrupp has said is beneficial to the current project.

In addition, the two businesses have announced an exclusive distributor agreement for the rental and direct sale of equipment in Germany, Austria and Denmark as well as a service agreement.

Bauer said that customers will benefit from “this strategic partnership between two market-leading companies”.

“In RTG we have found our ideal partner,” said Thyssenkrupp Infrastructure CEO Dietmar Jürges. “RTG has a deep understanding of the special requirements of civil engineering. Bauer’s Construction segment already has a longstanding business relationship with Thyssenkrupp Infrastructure.”

Another three RTG drivers are to be handed over to Thyssenkrupp Infrastructure this year and will then be available to customers in the four German sales regions, Austria and Denmark. Thyssenkrupp Infrastructure will assume responsibility for customer and technical service for the equipment following intensive training of Thyssenkrupp employees by the RTG experts.
