Hylkema Funderingstechniek has expanded the fleet with a Junttan MPX90 multifunctional piling rig. The MPX90 is the largest device in the Junttan range and will be used by Hylkema to significantly increase the potential for heavy pile driving. With the new MPX90, equipped for full displacement stacking as well as CFA, Hylkema can now reach pile lengths up to 40 meters with Kelly extension.
Junttan’s MPX90 utilizes a state-of-the-art JD45 rotary head that enables large pile diameters and, along with 60t pull-down force and 100t extraction force, good penetration even in harsh soil conditions. For easier ground conditions, the rotation offers high rotational speeds – up to 70 rpm – and fast delivery with excellent winch control for maximum productivity.
The first project that Hylkema used was a relatively small residency project of 34 apartments in Groningen. For this project Hylkema used the CFA pile method with a diameter of 600 mm, with a pile length of 20 meters. A total of 70 poles were installed. Although the jobsite was small, the versatility and efficient mobilization of the MPX90 enabled Hylkema to achieve higher daily production than planned.
