76 jetty piles for house boat mooring places

76 JETTY PILES FOR HOUSE BOAT MOORING PLACES

In 2017, the CAPE VLT-80 was used to upend and install 74 piles with lengths varying between 18 and 23 meters for jetties for house boats.

According to the installation contractor, Herbosch-Kiere, the installation sequence with the CAPE VLT was at least twice as fast compared to conventional methods.

With the CAPE VLT it is possible to grab a pile in a horizontal position, upend it to vertical position and start driving the pile in free hanging mode.
