||ICE 815C with 600 power pack
Due to growth of the harbor activities, the port of Zárate which is located on the banks of the Paraná River needed extension. The existing terminal was extended in April 2011. The foundation for this new terminal was made by the ICE 815C hammer. The foundation is made of steel tubes with a diameter of 800 mm and a length of over 33 meters. The tubes have a weight of 8,5 tons. The project was executed by Tecmaco Integral SA ( located in Campana B.A.) with the help of their ICE 815C rental hammer. All tubes were driven to the correct depth without difficulty so the project was finished without encountering any problems.
