Roger Bullivant

Roger Bullivant has invested £2.5M in building 10 piling rigs with improved environmental and safety features.

Manufactured at the firm's Burton-on-Trent base, the machines are based on tracked excavators, with operating systems designed and built by Bullivant engineers.

The rigs will be fitted with Bullivant's quiet hammer (GE November 1999), in which synthetic materials cushion the hammer blow while ensuring efficient transfer of impact energy. The design avoids metal on metal contact which is the main cause of noise and vibration.

Four of the rigs will be remote-controlled while six will have dual controls, offering operators the choice of using the cab or remote controls.
