Midi Rig

Aarsleff Ground Engineering, one of the UK’s leading contractors of driven precast piles and ground engineering solutions, is preparing to take delivery of three new ‘midi’ rigs, making its combined UK and European fleet one of the largest available. The first two rigs will arrive in the UK in October 2016 with the third rig following later in 2017.

The three new ‘midi’ rigs, which have been supplied by ABI Equipment Ltd working closely to a brief detailed by Aarsleff Ground Engineering, will be put to good use on driven piling projects and in particular those with restricted access or limited working space, such as domestic properties and developments.

Speaking about the addition of these ‘midi’ rigs to Aarsleff’s fleet, Kevin Hague, General Manager at Aarsleff, said: “These are high performance, highly specified and efficient machines, capable of operating on minimal platforms. This not only allows us to pile restricted access sites, but requiring minimal platforms, offers the potential for significant cost savings overall.”

He continued: “Aarsleff has always had a strong presence in the residential / domestic housing sector, where access is typically restricted, and these ‘midi’ rigs increase our capability enormously. It also extends our ability to work on other complex commercial projects, as these too increasingly require specialist rigs or have space only for minimal platforms.”
