Our Piling Capabilities
The Vermeer PD10 is considered the most advanced pile driver on the market. The machines design ensures reliability and safety, whilst its 1350J hammer makes it one of the most powerful. Paired with the Carlson GPS system our machines are also one of the most accurate and automated, hence we are capable of meeting strict tolerances and high levels of efficiency.
Installation of piles up to 6m
Installation of all shapes of piles, up to 230mm in diameter.
Piling into a range of ground conditions (excluding rock)
Carlson GPS capabilities:
Tolerances within 20mm
Auto-plumb & auto-guidance to minimise operator error
Auto height stop, given solar array data contains RL information (no need for string lines or laser receivers)
EPC contractors can choose us for:
a single piling service
a package of multiple services: piling, horizontal boring and trenching.
Why we operate the Vermeer PD-10
RRPD Pty Ltd operates Vermeer PD-10 pile drivers with Carlson and Position Partner GPS software. After operating Vermeer machinery for 17 years we understand the importance of premium reliability and service to delivering a project. The PD-10 hammers piles into most ground conditions without any pre-drilling, sanding or concreting. Such installation provides the most cost effective and timely installation of ground mount piles. The solar pile driving industry is driven by key performance criteria (KPIs) and our machines enable us to deliver on time deadlines and to quality standards.
Benefits of the Carlson and Position Partners GPS System
Reduced piling costs from anywhere between $2.85 – $8 per pile via:
Improving productivity (up to 20%) - Improved efficiency as pile location is automatically located by the machine therefore minimising set up time & operator error
Improved accuracy within a 15mm tolerance -Flow on effect of improved framing and panelling times and associated costs.
Reduced surveying requirements & costs – This system is reliable and accurate minimising surveying requirements.
