Less Pain. More Gain.
Piling is demanding, and traditional means and methods are being pushed to their limits. Built engineers have spent thousands of hours developing an advanced autonomous solution that can rise to meet the challenges of utility-scale solar.
Maximize Equipment Uptime
Reduce Health & Safety Risks
Consistently Hit Tight Tolerances
Lower Installation & Labor Costs
The Bold Standard
Don’t compromise with your tools. The RPD 35 is a fully autonomous robotic pile driver that combines four steps — surveying, pile distribution, pile driving, and as-builts — into a single robot. Take advantage of the superior production and efficiency gains that only a robot can deliver, and outshine the competition.
Up to 5× Faster
The RPD 35 is a field-proven force multiplier that works up to five times faster than a traditional pile driver. Reduce cycle times and boost productivity with the most advanced pile driver on the market.
Achieve centimeter accuracy with state-of-the-art RTK GPS, IMUs, and sensors. Unlock consistent piling capabilities that minimize time spent on inspection and rework.
Stay on track even when piles hit refusal. The RPD 35 will automatically flag piles that exceed the refusal threshold and continue on to the next pile in the sequence.
Take Out Shakeout
Eliminate pile distribution with a unique basket design. The RPD 35 can carry up to 192 piles on each run. Conventional methods of shakeout don’t stand a chance.
Minimize site preparation and grading with an adaptable system that can support almost any foundation design. The RPD 35 can install piles up to 21 feet long and 400 pounds in weight, as well as both W6 and W8 cross sections.
Consolidate as-built documentation into a single source of truth. The RPD 35 creates highly-accurate drawings automatically. Access, view, and export your files for seamless handoff.
Work in muddy weather with industry-leading ground pressure of 11 psi. The RPD 35 offers track clearance of 1.6 feet, ensuring you never miss work for a rainy day.
Reliably install within stringent tolerances without missing a beat. Using the RPD 35 reduces rework to boost your productivity and lower your costs.
Safe and Sound
Install piles out of earshot. Operators can monitor the RPD 35 from a distance, which limits harmful noise exposure common in traditional piling methods.
On the Right Track
Minimize installation hours. Maximize gigawatt hours. Our flexible autonomous piling solution is compatible with tracker systems from all of the leading manufacturers. The RPD 35’s tracker-first capabilities ensure seamless installation from survey to grid connection.
