AGD supports Ivor King on major HS2 project in Bucks
Long standing customer Ivor King Piling recently engaged us to assist them on an HS2 project at Sheephouse Wood, near Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire.
Here Ivor King are installing temporary sheet piles for a concrete structure using both vibratory and silent piling techniques.
We were called on to provide telescopic crawler cranes as service cranes and telescopic leader rigs with vibratory & impact hammers.
In October 2022 we mobilised an RTG RG19T telescopic leader rig with MR150AVm vibro to install the 18.5 m long pairs of AZ sheet piles. Assisted by one of our Sennebogen 673R, 70 tons telescopic crawler cranes.
Shortly afterwards further telescopic crawler cranes were mobilised including a Marchetti Lupa 65 tons and Sennebogen 6113R 120 tons capacity. These were supplied to support the Giken SCZ675WMG super crush piler which commenced work on a second wall of sheet piles.
Latterly in January 2023 a Fambo HR5000 hydraulic impact hammer was fitted to the RTG RG19T to assist with back driving the piles to level through the extremely stiff soils.
All of the machines were supplied with tier 4 & tier 5 engines to comply with the HS2 requirements.
