Golf Day Hits Out For Worthy Cause

In early August, ASP Piling and Australian Dewatering Systems got behind a worthy cause by becoming a sponsor of ‘The Buzzball Golf Day’ to raise much needed funds for the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust.

The event at The Glades Golf Course at Robina on the Gold Coast has raised close to $50,000 since its inception in 2011, thanks to the close support of Gold Coast businesses and donations.

The day went exceptionally well, with the weather holding out and the golfing stories continuing into the night along with the raffle draw, auction and live band.

Every cent raised by the day helps to make a difference to families who are affected by this crippling disease, not only through research to find a cure, but also by enhancing the quality of life for the cystic fibrosis community.

For more information on this worthy charity and details for next year’s event, you can visit the web page and even make a donation via PayPal.

Bauer Rig Ready To Roll

ASP Piling’s recent $1.2 million purchase of a Bauer RTG-16 piling rig is ready to roll in the latest ASP livery.
The ‘Piling Anchoring Dewatering’ message makes clear that ASP covers all the bases in ground works.

Managing Director Patrick Buckley said the company’s decision to invest in the million dollar-plus rig reflects their confidence in the Australian construction market.

“It also allows us to keep up with growing demand for our services as we continue to work nationwide,” he said.

The new pile driver with telescopic leader on base carrier allows ASP to install up to 16 metre sheet piles and deliver larger CFA (continuous flight auger) piles.

The RTG-16 has a maximum mast height of 20.63 m, weighs 49.5 tonnes and produces 470 kW or 630 hp. The versatile German-made rig can adapt to a wide range of applications such as hydraulic vibrator, front of wall drilling, auger drilling, cutter soil mixing, sheet pile press, soil mixing wall system and single column mixing.
