APE on the front of Green Construction with West Coast Contractors

West Coast Contractors has chosen APE/J&M equipment to assist in their assault in driving 16 inch and 24 inch precast concrete pile. The task of driving concrete piles with a diesel hammer is enhanced, maximizing production by using hydraulic trips and variable hydraulic throttles. APE/J&M is the largest consumer of vegetable based hydraulic oil “Terresolve” in North America, and with available alternatives such as vegetable based fuels and lubes instead of fossil based consumables, the use of APE/J&M equipment can change any jobsite as green and environmentally friendly as possible. Contact your local APE/J&M office to find out how our team can enhance your profitability and lower your jobsite environmental footprint.

Costa Fortuna goes APE again!

Michele Corda the Equipment Supervisor for Costa Fortuna and Jim Casavant of APE were on hand for the 1st Caisson driven with their new APE D50 outfitted with Costa Fortuna’s very well thought out Offshore Driving System. The System uses a Large drive plate with a Heavy Duty Pipe stub welded in the center, the Hammer in a Short Lead section is then lower onto the stub and Driving is complete.
The D50 will be used to drive the 2.5 mt. dia. x 58 mt. long Caisson’s for the new 3,000 meter Ponte Luis Inacio Lula da Silva Bridge. The Overall Shaft depth is 85 mt.

APE looks forward to many more projects with Costa Fortuna in the future.
