Future Tools for the Future of Energy
The RPD 35 is the most advanced pile driver on your jobsite. Take advantage of the safety and efficiency gains that only a robot can deliver — and outshine the competition.
A Winning Combination
Traditional pile driving methods need a change. The RPD 35 surveys, distributes, drives, and records every pile for an all-in-one machine.
Stay in Demand
The biggest solar buildout in US history is here. Automation is the only way to keep up with demand. Gain an edge and win bids by utilizing autonomous pile driving.
Beat Your Best
The RPD 35 is where power meets precision. A custom-engineered hammer working at 500 blows per minute, up to 24 hours a day, puts pile in the ground faster than ever before. Traditional means and methods don’t stand a chance.
Precise Any Way You Measure It
The RPD 35 can hit installation tolerances from every major tracker manufacturer. RTK GPS and advanced sensor fusion ensure you get it right the first time — saving time and eliminating rework.
Safe from Every Angle
Safety drives the RPD 35.
The Eight-Layer Safety System
helps keep robots and people working safely together and reduces accidents from manual pile driving.
A unique sled carrying system supercharges pile distribution. The sleds on the RPD 35 can carry payloads of 22,000 pounds and up to 192 piles. The sleds unlock new productivity gains not possible with existing pile distribution methods.
How It Works
The Most Advanced Way to Drive Pile
Collapse four labor-intensive steps into a single robot. The RPD 35’s advanced software and hardware work seamlessly.
- The RPD 35 is pre-positioned at a solar array block, and the corresponding pile plot plan is uploaded to the robot’s computer.
- The pile plan is automatically divided into sequences of piles, and each sequence is manually loaded into pile baskets.
- The pile baskets are forked onto the RPD’s sleds with a 12K telehandler, and the autonomous piling task is initiated.
- The robot installs all the piles in its payload, then returns to its starting position to be reloaded.
