Three Woltman machines at work at the same project
Due to the quick growth of supermarket chain Lidl, the company is in the need for a new distribution center. Moerdijk, a city located in the west of the Netherlands, is the place where this distribution center will be built. In only two months’ time, 3500 piles need to be piled into the soil, an enormous project with a strict deadline. In order to achieve this deadline, contractor Voorbij Funderingstechniek partnered up with Terracon Funderingstechniek and Ballast Nedam. Three Woltman 160PR piling rigs are used to drive the 40m piles into the solid ground. Due to the stability and low center point of gravity, these drilling rigs are the perfect machines to do the job.
