A bright spring morning on the M23, working with Van Elle as they install 900mm diameter piles using one of their Hutte 207 rigs.
Gemech added another NDT system to its expanding fleet with the recent instrumentation upgrade to its MDT400 CFA rig.
Working with specialist contractor Ground Developments Ltd at their Mass Mixing contract in Lossiemouth on a rainy day in November.
Using a combination of NDT sensors and GPS inputs, we were able to tailor an instrumentation and monitoring solution which fit GDL's specific requirements.
Having near real-time online access to the construction data via NDT's unique 'NDTDataCloud' application enabled the construction data to be monitored remotely. This proved hugely cost effective and enabled GDL's engineers to keep a very close watch on key production information as the contract progressed.
GDL Project Director Wayne Barr said 'It's been a busy few months to achieve compliance in a data driven BIM environment, GDL partnered with NDTechnology to engineer a combined geodetic, grout pressure, flow, depth and mixing system for the GDL MMX operation. Utilising, our SoilMec Pumping solution, Trimbles RTK GNSS GCS system for localised positioning, NDTs Pressure, volume and flow information, we are able to provide realtime information to our onsite operators, whilst also enabling quality assurance review from the office. The system brings a new level of quality to the deep soil mixing and mass mixing field, which will further benefit GDLs ground improvement solutions.'
We're pleased to announce the addition of a new range of vibration level monitoring equipment - the GVM-1 seismograph.
Operating the rugged unit couldn't be simpler - a single button click and the unit is monitoring.
The unit can be supplied with a wireless alarm. This can be configured to activate when a pre-specified vibration level is close to being exceeded.
The GVM-1 is available for short or long term hire. We can also provided experienced engineers if a manned site attendance is required.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for hire fees and availability.
It was great to catch up with many old friends in Paris at Intermat 2018.
We were also delighted our partners at Franki and Watson & Hillhouse were both displaying the NDT instrumentation fitted to their new rigs.
We are delighted to continue to provide AGD Equipment with instrumentation for its range of CFA piling rigs.
This Soiltek S80 pictured below is the latest machine to join AGD's expanding fleet and was supplied with wireless pressure sensing capability - this is a very popular option on rigs with auger extensions as it negates any requirement for costly (and vulnerable) recoil cable drums.
For the ultimate in flexibility and convenience, the on-board instrumentation also enables AGD to enjoy the benefit of full online fleet & contract management using our innovative NDTDataCloud solution.
We recently enjoyed a welcome break from the UK winter to visit a number of NDT customers in Australia.
During our stay, we were pleased to host a series of presentation days, on-site training and Q & A seminars. These covered a range of our instrumentation products and included CFA, Driven and Soil Mixing applications.
The talks & instructional sessions proved very popular with office, engineering and site staff alike and we look forward to undertaking more of the same in the very near future.
Pictured below is the latest of Murphy Ground Engineering's rigs to be fitted with NDT instrumentation.
This installation forms part of a program of conversion of Soilmec & Casagrande rigs where existing instrumentation is being replaced with our latest PL3000/CFA systems.
Pictured at the yard of UK agent Piling Equipment Ltd is a Geax EK75 during final commissioning of NDT PL3000/CFA instrumentation.
The EK75 is the latest Geax rig to be fitted with an NDT system, a range which includes similarly equipped EK40, EK60 and EK110 machines.
G M Piling recently took delivery of their latest acquisition - a new Llamada P140-TT.
The rig is fitted with a high specification PL3000/CFA system, complete with extras such as our proprietary 'True Torque' module.
This module is available as an option to our standard CFA instrumentation for any rig with user selectable gears or torque ranges. In addition to enabling the actual auger torque to be displayed (not to be confused with hydraulic motor pressure), the module provides the user with our proprietary 'Drilling Resistance' bolt-on.
Conceived, developed and implemented by N D Technology, 'Drilling Resistance' provides the user with unique data during the boring phase and is an invaluable tool for identifying rock horizons and changes in soil shear modulus.
We recently enjoyed a whistle-stop trip to Kenya providing advice and assistance to Civicon on a project to the north of Nairobi.
Pictured below is Civicon's Casagrande CFA26 complete with NDT PL3000/CFA instrumentation, about to commence installation of contract piles.
We were delighted to have been asked by Van Elle to provide our support at a recent Open Day held at their facility in Kirkby-in-Ashfield.
The 2 day event was very well attended (and very well received) by a variety of customers and, as well as showcasing some of our products and services, we remained on hand to provide technical assistance and advice on the NDT instrumentation fitted across a range of Van Elle machines.
N D Technology Ltd is proud to have been commissioned to roll-out its instrumentation products across the fleet of London based foundation contractor Murphy Ground Engineering.
The Llamada P140TT pictured below is Murphy's most recent addition to a growing fleet and becomes its latest rig to be fitted with a PL3000/CFA system.
This multi-purpose EK40L became the latest Geax rig to be fitted with an NDT PL3000/CFA installation.
The machine is pictured during commissioning of its instrumentation system at the workshop of UK agent Piling Equipment Ltd.
We recently enjoyed a flying visit to Tollo in Italy to put the finishing touches to a PL3000/CFA system installed by Soil-Tek to one of their S60 piling rigs.
In addition to the standard range of NDT CFA sensors, the system was supplied with optional wireless concrete pressure sensing and an integrated mast inclinometer.
The rig is now heading for a customer in Australia and, with the benefit of NDT's high speed two-way remote data link, its performance on job sites can be monitored remotely from our base in the UK.
The cellular data link will also allow the rig's computer to be uploaded remotely with detailed piling schedules, CFA construction profiles, new software and any changes to rig or auger configuration with no requirement for an engineer to visit site.
