Globally referred to as a dry pile, CFA helps increase the functional productivity at work-sites along with added environmental benefits such as an exponential reduction in sound emissions and other pollutants.
Touted as the future of the ground engineering sector in India, CFA enable excavation in a wide variety of soils ranging from dry, water-logged, loose, cohesive, also equipped to penetrate through low-capacity soft rock formations such as loamy clays, limestone and sandstone.
Soilmec is the first company in India to carry out the CFA at a site in Rajpura up to a depth of 18 mtrs, with a diameter of 600 mm where cage was driven to 18 mtrs depth. This opens a new era to the piling scope in India.
Mr. Sanjoy Chakrabarty, MD, Soilmec India, said, “CFA is the future of foundation engineering technology.” The dynamic and physical load tests of the experimental piles done in Rajpura gives strength to our believe, we have great expectation from CFA to become a most acceptable and economically piling methods in many part of our country.
Patronised amongst the majority of European nations, this innovative, high performance technology is trusted primarily for its stability, minimalistic operating costs and its unique ability to operate with great ease in almost any type of ground.
