DRILLED PILE INSTALLATION SERVICES
LDD HAS DEVELOPED ONE OF THE LARGEST FLEETS OF REVERSE CIRCULATION, PILE-TOP, AND ROCK SOCKET DRILLING RIGS IN THE WORLD.
Whilst some clients come to LDD for their drilling expertise and may wish to rent a simple drilling service, others see the benefit of entrusting LDD as their foundation installation partner on projects, drawing on their extensive range of piling equipment.
Pile top and reverse circulation drilling
LDD’s fleet of drill rigs can be tooled to suit a large range of pile sizes from 0.6m to 8.5m diameter and are equipped to drill on both vertical and inclined piles up 18.5 degrees in standard configuration.
LDD pile top drill rigs are modular and container freightable, allowing cost-effective shipment of equipment around the world. LDD designed drilling rigs are the next generation, encompassing operation experience and include safety features, such as:
- Human Machine Interface (HMI) for operator control,
- Safety lock-out systems
- Fly by wire electronic control
- Continuous electronic data recording for drilling parameters
- Proximity sensors to eliminate damage by operator error.
LDD can easily reduce the amount of energy that is required to drive a pile to its target elevation. Under-reaming reduces pile fatigue and increases design options.
LDD is the world leader in the design and engineering of under reaming technology. Their equipment can use under-reamers when required and their in-house design capability can create bespoke solutions to support project requirements.
Where pile fatigue is a concern, LDD will deploy a drill with or without under-reamers, to drill through the harder geology to enable re-driving or grouting to take place to secure the pile in position. They can set the under-reamers to open below the pile toe to any given diameter to reduce the amount of resistance on the driven pile.
