New Junttan PMx22 Delivered

Aarsleff Ground Engineering are thrilled to have taken delivery of a new Junttan PMx22 piling rig, one of many fleet investments already secured for 2020.

The PMx22 is the third of its model to be added to the company’s fleet, bringing the total number of driven piling rigs to 14. The new rig, which was transported directly from Junttan’s factory in Finland, is part of Aarsleff’s overall programme to reduce the average age of its fleet and overhead costs on maintenance.

The PMx22 provides benefits such as lower emissions, better fuel economy, quieter and safer operations, and more reliability to Aarsleff’s growing fleet.

Mark Fuller, Aarsleff Piling Director said on the delivery of the rig,

With our new Junttan rig, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to being UK market leaders for driven precast concrete piling. We have seen a rise in large commercial and industrial shed work requiring robust foundations.

Expanding its geotechnical capabilities, Aarsleff also invested in two new Casagrande C6 XP-2 drilling rigs over the winter period, along with acquiring a Klemm 709.

Managing Director Kevin Hague added:

Over the past 6 months we have been able to invest in new machinery and equipment, giving us a strong position to provide our customers with assurance and the continued commitment required to deliver large schemes across the UK. We took delivery of two new Casagrande C6 rigs for our mini piling and drilling & grouting works which have already been busy completing major drilling works on the M6 and in Ouseburn.
