BRUCE Vibro Hammer SGV-1000 in the marine bridge construction

A marine Bridge construction for Oil & Gas transportation has kicked off     The area where BRUCE SGV-1000 Vibro pulled in, follows the natural contours of the coastline and is facing a  gigantic island that seemed merely a no long way feeling like within a reachable distance. The client is seeking for the  very lucrative and successful project this year to transport  Oil & Gas that they produce through a new marine bridges.     Vibro’s standard function test prior to upcoming Pile Drives   The BRUCE Vibro SGV-1000 has conducted its Vibro functional test oriented mainly for Vibro and Power Pack  aimed at Clamping work and demonstrating its driving forces capability that could be making for sure of penetration Into the soil and also included Pressure, Required Oil Flow and Hydraulic plus Electrical sorts test that was tested.            Tube Piles mounted to support its structure as an anchor Piles  The Tube Piles with a diameter 1020 were moved and then one was mounted on a designated spot where the soils  already had been excavated to be driven as an anchor Pile. The Piles for the first stage of Vibro operation are corn- shaped on the bottom with not a hollow type of Piles requiring a rigid foundation for the whole structure.             BRUCE Vibro SGV-1000 that is an optimum compatible Pile Driver   BRUCE Vibro SGV-1000 was provided with a two different Clamps either of which were Sheet Pile and Tube Pile that  the most  commonly used in pile driving into the ground with a lot easy and convenient  way of altering  Clamps depending on pile sorts to make sure of gaining enough Clamping Power against piles for a lifetime driving and extraction.

The Bruce SGH-4719 successfully completed the pile driving of Sakonnet River Bridge at RI, USA

Government RI DOT : Pile Driving Completed at Sakonnet River Bridge Project The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (DOT) announced Thursday that it has concluded pile driving operations on the Sakonnet River Bridge project in Tiverton and Portsmouth. The last round of pile driving concluded on Tuesday, and positive test results available Thursday on the success of that operation means that the department can conclude this phase of the bridge project. "We appreciate the patience of the residents and business owners near the bridge and apologize for the noise and disruption the pile driving operations caused," DOT Director Michael P. Lewis said. "We are excited to reach this milestone thanks to the efforts of our contractor, Cardi Corp., as we continue replacing this valuable transportation link to Aquidneck Island." The DOT broke ground on the bridge replacement project in April 2009. The 3.7 million contract with Cardi Corp. for the construction of the new bridge is the largest single contract in DOT's history. The department anticipates the new bridge to be open to traffic in spring 2012; however, the contract with Cardi Corp. includes  an early incentive clause which could result in the bridge opening to traffic earlier.


The Bruce SGH-2015 completed the pile driving of Chincoteaque Channel Bridges at Va, USA

By Bayshore Concrete Products at Pile Driving Association Magazine January, 2009 Chincoteague is a small town on the Eastern Shore of Virginia with roughly 4,000 residents. It hosts more than one million tourists each year and is famous for its annual Pony Swim and Auction. The Black Narrows and the Chincoteague Channel Bridges on Virginia Route 175 provide the only access to Chincoteague Island. These steel bridges, built in 1939 and 1940, have become costly to maintain and repair, and are narrower than current standards for safety and ease of traffic flow.   The citizens of Chincoteague knew that a new bridge was needed and they lobbied the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Commonwealth Transportation Boards (CTB) for funds to replace the bridges. Environmental concerns, sustainability and the timeline were the major factors in the determination to use pre-cast concrete for this project. The performance and sustainability of pre-cast pre-stressed concrete, combined with the economical advantages and design flexibility, make it the preferred construction material for today’s bridge designers. In addition, pre-cast pre-stressed concrete construction reduces installation time by eliminating expensive and time-intensive field formwork.
