Costa Fortuna a Foundation Contractor from Sao Paulo, Brazil has taken delivery of a new APE Model 100 Wick Drain installation system.
We assisted Costa Fortuna’s very fine crew with installing the system on their 245 Cat, the installation went smoothly with only minor problems with the Excavator’s older hydraulic system.
I look forward to many more projects with Costa Fortuna in the beautiful Country of Brazil.
APE’S NEW RIG GIVES JUNTTAN A RUN FOR THE MONEY
APE’s new “fast set up and drive” pile rig, three years in the making, has arrived in Rome, New York. The new APE rig is fitted with a super advanced APE 170 variable moment vibro and is driving 60-foot long sheet piles. The mast rotates: something not found on any other pile rig made.
The new rig is a joint venture between APE and Nippon. APE’s Bill Ziadie helped design the rig. Bill previously worked with both the Junttan and PVE Pile rigs. Bill made sure APE’s new rig had all the best features of the Junntan and ABI rigs.
The rig leap frogs both the Junttan and ABI rigs in technology by offering a rotatable mast along with a full three drums of lifting and pull down capacity and the ability to accept high torque drilling tools.
This rig has money making features not found on any pile rig in the world. APE’s three year effort is getting is breaking news in Rome, New York!
