Kvaerner Cementation Foundations has just taken delivery of its new cased secant piling equipment which will be mounted on one of its Soilmec R622 rigs. The machine will be used for the first time on a secant pile wall contract this month, Kvrner says. The system can install up to 1m diameter, 21m long secant piles cased to 16m to produce a better and more consistent sealed wall than conventional secant piling methods. It also gives improved vertical tolerances and considerable production advantages over traditional secant pile installation, which often requires a separate crane and oscillator to handle and install casing.
