Piling rig upgrade with new live mast

Foundation company Gebr. Van ‘t Hek contacted Eager.one after purchasing two used Hitachi-Sumitomo SCX800-HD crawler cranes. These machines were bought to replace old machines. But before Van ‘t Hek could start using them, they also required an upgrade in capacity and functionality.

Piling Rig Upgrade

For one of the machines, Eager.one was asked to do the engineering work for the rebuild and modification of the machine, to a SCX800-HD PD piling rig. The machine required a new leader with a maximum of 40 meter, a boom reinforcement, additional ballast and a live mast for leader erection purposes.

The activities of Eager.one started with mapping the capacity requirements and measuring the current components. For this project we have calculated the boom strength after which a reinforcement was designed. For the erection of the 40 m leader a newly designed live mast was required. All designs and calculations were executed according the standard for foundation machines EN16228.

The project was completed with the weighing of all components, the calculation of the final capacity charts and the delivery of a test protocol. The testing of the foundation machine SCX800-HD PD was concluded successfully.

We are very proud to see that the machine is now in full operation and working according to the wishes of our client Gebr. Van ‘t Hek.
