Dieseko’s PVE en ICE vibratory hammers hard at work in SAA road construction project
The Dutch Schiphol-Amsterdam-Almere project is one of the largest road construction projects over the coming decade. The project focuses on improving traffic flow, travel time and liveability. Roads are repositioned with engineering feats including a second Hollandse Brug (A6) and an aqueduct (A1) to run underneath the river Vecht at Muiden.
The SAAone construction combination has contracted its foundation works to three of Dieseko's clients: Volker Staal & Funderingen, Vroom Fundatietechnieken and Gebr. De Koning. Their impressive piling rigs and cranes have been up near the town of Muiden on the river Vecht since spring. Preparing for the aqueduct excavation, work is now underway to drive sheetpiles, drive drainage pipes to pour a water resistant gel layer at a depth of 24 metres, and pile drive a total of 5.300 vibro piles. Once these are in place, the actual excavation and construction will start in 2015.
PVE and ICE vibratory hammers will be used to all these foundation works. Use will be made of two PVE 110M vibratory hammers, a PVE 105M, a PVE 2335VM and an ICE 36RF. Some of these vibratory hammers have been supplied by Dieseko RENTAL. This large hire fleet offers pile driving contractors vibratory hammers from 10 to 500kgm. Dieseko RENTAL advices and supplies on-demand customised project services, in which speed and flexibility are key. The SOR (Service) department warrants a reliable operation.
