Uxbridge-based piling contractor Westpile has just taken delivery of its new Soilmec R825 rig after final testing at the Italian manufacturer's factory at Cesena, south east of Bologna, in Northern Italy. The latest addition to the company's fleet boasts the Cased Flight Auger Pile (CFP) system, capable of installing CFA piles with temporary casing up to 1000mm diameter, which both companies claim offers a variety of advantages over rotary bored and conventional CFA techniques.
