65 combi wall piles

65 COMBI WALL PILES

In 2022, the CAPE VLT-80 was used to upend and install 65 combi wall piles with a length of 29.25m for the renovation of the Royerssluis/lock and Oosterweelknoop in Antwerp, Belgium.

The CAPE VLT-80, which is certified for upending and lifting under Lloyd’s Register CLAME, offered contractors consortium Rinkoniên the ideal solution for a safe installation on this inshore project.

With the CAPE VLT-80 the job could be carried out with just one crane, instead of the two cranes required for the traditional installation method with a standard vibrohammer without upending functionality saving money on less equipment required and saving time by speeding up the installation process.
