Conventionally, sheet pile installation tools require several crane lifts to move to the next position and are often supported on a spud pile. This pile needs to be vibrated out when repositioning. We at TWD have designed an innovative sheet pile tool that saves a significant amount of time.
Our new sheet pile tool places support on the previously installed piles and has a cantilevered gate to guide the next sheets. When relocating, the support pile clamps are released, a single crane lift repositions the gate, and the clamps are re-activated. For additional flexibility, the guide beams can rotate to enable the tool to change the direction of piling. This makes the tool soil independent, saving time and increasing worksite safety.
