Choosing the right Pile Driver for your solar jobsite

Solar farms have quickly become more prolific in the Australian renewable energy market, and for good reason. Over time, experts are estimating Australia’s leading source of power will be through carbon-neutral means such as solar panels. It’s no wonder landowners and farmers with room to spare are utilising their large areas of free space for solar farms. 

Deciding on the kind of pile driver is dependent on the job at hand. Typically, pile drivers are designed for a solar farm, so that they can install hundreds and even thousands of solar panels. On the other hand, some sites only require small paddocks worth of solar panels to be installed, so it would be an overkill to purchase the largest machine available. 

It’s important the equipment is fast, efficient, and suits your requirements. Let’s tak

Advantages of using a Solar Pile Driver

Solar pile drivers are fast pace

Like any big construction job, large solar projects are also prone to big delays, supply bottlenecks, or worse, poor organisation. Arguably one of the most time-consuming jobs in any large scale solar project is the installation of the solar piles used to support the solar panels. Large solar farms typically have several hundred, even thousands of solar piles that need embedding into the ground. 

Luckily the solar pile driver can complete this job at an extraordinary pace. With long run times, exceptional manoeuvrability, and powerful force, pile drivers are the fast-pace machine needed to pick up the pace. 

Solar pile drivers are extremely accurate 

One of the main advantages of a solar pile driver is its unparalleled accuracy.

Solar farms are intricate systems that depend on a high degree of planning and accuracy – especially when it comes to the placement of piles. Mistakes in placement and accuracy don’t just cause costly delays to the overall project, they can end up putting your reputation as a contractor at risk. 

With modern technology at hand, Vermeer’s solar pile drivers can carefully and accurately drive solar piles into the ground with extreme precision. Ensuring proper placement and consistent depths are critical to the success of any solar project – no matter the size. 

Solar pile drivers lower labour costs

Solar power plants are known for requiring large investments in their construction and scaling. Solar pile drivers can help small businesses avoid restrictive labour costs by doing most of the hard work themselves. 

Compared to more traditional methods and previous models, the solar pile drivers of today are easily operable with two people – one in control, and the other for guidance and support. This means at any time you can have multiple pile drivers working simultaneously and lower the labour costs per unit as you drive in more solar piles per hour. 

This rate of work can achieve faster results, meaning you can deploy more machines to high priority projects, while ensuring your labour costs are kept in check. With lower costs, you can prioritise your pile driver’s efficiency, as well as focus on training elite teams for fast and effective solar pile installation projects.
