The gigantic crawler pile driver sets sail for Grenada from China
The departure of the freight marks the beginning of substantial construction for the Grenada National Resort.
CHONGQING, SICHUAN, CHINA, July 13, 2023 -- The gigantic crawler pile driver newly purchased by Singapore Heng Sheng (Grenada) Development Pte Ltd sets sail for the Caribbean country of Grenada from China today. The departure of the freight marks the successful completion of the preparatory work which includes finalizing the preliminary layout plan, obtaining the government's construction permit and putting in place the bulk construction material for the Heng Sheng-developed Grenada National Resort as it now enters the substantial building phase.
The pile driving machine is a large industry machinery used for pile foundation construction in building projects. As it sails towards Grenada, other heavy equipment such as the concrete mixer together is too gearing up for operation, with a newly assembled team of staff being trained for the up-coming tasks. The pile foundation is the important first step in the physical construction of a building and will provide a solid base for the Phase One of the 375-acre resort, including a main hotel building, golf club, casino and staff quarters.
Mr. Li Yuanfa, chairman of Heng Sheng, said, "This piling rig is a globally sourced equipment best suited for our project, and its departure carries the eagerness of all Heng Sheng employees to kick-start the actual building process. We are very grateful to our Chinese partner for enabling us complete the procurement and facilitating the smooth transportation of the machinery."

"The progress we have made so far would not be possible without the support of the Grenada Planning and Development Authority (PDA), for which I am grateful. I am also proud of our project construction team, who has demonstrated high efficiency in facilitation and exceptional quality in execution that has always been the value of Heng Sheng."
