Tube installation with APE 600B in Port of Rotterdam

01-11-2013

In the port of Rotterdam contractor Geka Bouw BV realizes a number of projects for various clients. Part of these projects include installation of a large number of tubes which serve as mooring piles. For this purpose CAPE Holland rented an APE Model 600B to Geka Bouw BV. The model 600B hammer with an eccentric moment of 230 kg-m is equipped with a special clamping system that easily can be adjusted to the required pile size (minimum ø1.020 mm, maximum ø3.730 mm).
Before the installation was carried out, a vibro drive prediction (VDA) was carried out. The Model 600B met in all cases up to expectations, a proof that vibro driving is a good alternative to impact driving.
