The contract was to install a sheet pile retaining wall directly alongside the railway line in order to free up land for Network Rail to utilise for development.
The site was extremely small and required the right size cranes to be selected for the space constraints.
The contractor also used two Giken super crush silent pilers ,which were sold to them by AGD, to install the sheet piles two crawler cranes servicing them.
Each crane had to pitch piles for the silent pilers to install along with other duties such as unloading piles from delivery lorries.
The cranes supplied were a Sennebogen 6100HD, 100 tonne lattice boom crawler crane and a Marchetti Roma, 55 tonne telescopic boom crawler crane with virtual wall system and tilting cab
The job took about four weeks and AGD supplied both cranes with their own fully trained and directly employed operators.
AGD Equipment are the UK & Ireland distributors for both Sennebogen and Marchetti cranes, and Giken silent pilers.
