Van Elle purchases first rigid inclusion rig as Ground Improvement work expands

Ground Improvement rigid inclusions

Our Ground Improvement team recently took delivery of Van Elle’s first owned Rigid Inclusion rig.

The new addition to our fleet is a step forward as we expand our Ground Improvement offering across the county.

The Bauer RTG RG19T telescopic leader rig from AGD Ltd is equipped with a MR150AVM vibro with ACS system. Including a MB100 rotary head with ACS system, 5.5-ton service winch, and a Cat C18 750 hp engine tier 4i.

The versatile rig is suitable for installing rigid inclusions, vibro stone columns, sheet-piling, CFA piling and more.

The rig made its way to its first project earlier this week. The team installed 320mm diameter rigid inclusions to support the foundations for an office unit at the Bakewell Riverside Business Park.

Claire Garrett, Ground Improvement Director said ‘The purchase of this versatile rig reflects Van Elle’s commitment to the rigid inclusion market. As well as our continuous growth in our ground improvement offering,’

‘Completing the first Rigid Inclusion job using our first Van Elle owned RTG rig was an enjoyable milestone. This is a fantastic success for our team and demonstrates everyone’s dedication to growing as a market leader.’
