Techno Metal post Winnipeg installed helical piles to support the Night Train FMS at Motor Coach Industries.
The Night Train is supported on eight caps.
Those 8′ – 6″ x 8′ – 6″ x 3′ deep concrete caps are built on 8 helical piers that are installed at an average depth of 50′ to obtain a 100 ton capacity per pile-cap with a 2:1 safety factor.
The compact robot was ideal for the pile installation which did not disrupt the plants daily operations.
We only need 10′ of headroom for installation, and the robot can fit through a 50″ door opening.
