Pile driving necessity is accomplished with ZR technology June 6, 2012

The Rova Farms Bridge in Ocean County, NJ was originally built in 1929 as part of the infrastructure that is known today as historic Rova Farms. Located in Jackson Township, NJ, the bridge is being replaced with steel and concrete structure to protect the bridge from flooding & water damage. The historic location of Rova Farms Bridge was discovered by Russian settlers in the 1700s. It became a gathering place for Russian Americans where Russian traditions could continue and flourish; In 1934 The Russian Consolidated Mutual Aid Society of America, (ROOVA), bought 1,600 acres of land in the historic Cassville section of town and established a rural cultural center known today as Rova Farms. This site contains two historic Russian Orthodox Churches, Saint Vladimir Memorial Church and Saint Mary's Russian Orthodox Church, as well as a Russian restaurant and a flea market. The area was a resort throughout 1940's & 50's. Rova Bridge was actually a dam & spill way for Cassville Lake. Route 571/ Cassville road runs over the bridge in Ocean County, NJ & can be quite a busy area at times. The water from the lake was starting to undermine the road during heavy rains which caused major flooding. Lucas Brothers Construction had won the bid to replace the bridge/dam/spillway. The plan was to replace the current bridge & widen the spill way for the lake. They would also increase the safety of the bridge by adding shoulder space, updated guard rails & ..... read more

Last test of the coming new 25ZR at "De Linge", Netherlands December 11, 2011

During the period of 1 week, the new iCON 25ZR vibro is successfully tested on a project along the Linge in the Netherlands. With the help of the firm van Halteren these tests could be done. Sheet piles between 13 and 18 meters have been placed along the river "de Linge" near Gorinchem. The sheet pile walls having a diameter of 1 meter were easily brought into the ground. This made the testing program which was started several months ago in America successfully completed.

ICE USA has formed a Netherlands-based subsidiary, iCON® Foundation Equipment BV November 11, 2011

In the United States, buildings more than 200 years old are considered extremely old and located mainly in the original colonial cities and settlements. By contrast, in Europe, structures built 400, 500 or even 600 years ago still stand. Many are seen as national treasures that demand extreme care from those building or excavating nearby. Currently, construction requiring pilings represents a serious hazard to these historic structures. International Construction Equipment (ICE®), headquartered in Matthews, N.C., is changing that. The international manufacturing company has formed a Netherlands-based subsidiary, iCON® Foundation Equipment BV, which offers a technology designed to protect nearby structures. MOMENT AND FREQUENCY During foundational work, low-frequency vibrations from pile driving equipment are transmitted to nearby structures with results not unlike tiny earthquakes. "Structures can break, fall down or offset on their foundations," says Brock Hemmingsen, managing director of iCON® and general manager of ICE®. Hemmingsen says research shows that lower frequencies pose the greatest hazard. A vibratory pile driver operating at a 600 to 1,200 vibrations per minute (vpm) produces tremors at 20 cycles per second through the surrounding soil, he explains. These waves easily travel to nearby structures. A hammer operating at 2,300 vpm produces about a 40-cycle vibration. "Because the peak soil particle velocity decays more rapidly with the higher ..... read more
