03/2021 : Weelloader assistance in the Nederland
Mostly we share international projects, but working closer to home is something we also really like. Because as a typical Dutch family business, we are also very fond of our small and cold country.
This time we are at various construction sites throughout the Netherlands. In order of BAM, our CAT950 wheel loader may assist in a piling job. The end customer is TenneT and the purpose of the project is to place high voltage pylons including cables for the Borsele I and II project. This entire project runs from Borsele to Kapelle, and our client is taking care of this part. The second part, on the other side from Kapelle to Rilland, TenneT will take over again.
BAM’s assignment is to drive a total of 24 to 32 concrete piles, varying in length from 17.5 meters to no less than 24 meters. BAM drills the piles into the ground itself, and we use our wheel loader to transport 1500 liter cubes of cement to the client’s crane. This crane then pours the contents into the pile shaft for a correct foundation.
Our CAT950 is well used, to assist with the various activities. Because no construction site is the same. In addition to driving the cubes off and on, we also lay and move the dragline plates and help to install- and dismantle the entire equipment spread. Thanks to the right quick-release, we can change attachments quickly and safely, making it easy for us to provide our services for these varied activities.
