74 piles Houtdok Antwerp

19-05-2017

HERBOSCH-KIERE recently used our CV-80 VLT-U vibratory hammer to install 74 piles at the Houtdok in the centre of Antwerp. They are building a new quay wall with jetties for house boats. According to HERBOSCH-KIERE the installation sequence with the Vibro Lifting Tool (VLT) was at least twice as fast compared to conventional methods. With the VLT it is possible to grab a pile in a horizontal position, up-end it to vertical position and start driving the pile in free hanging mode.
