BlUE Piling Technology

Pile driving future XXL monopiles with underwater noise reduction at source level

IHC IQIP is going all in on noise mitigation. Therefore, we have invested in BLUE Piling Technology. BLUE Piling technology is an innovative piling solution that uses the deceleration of a large water mass to deliver a long-lasting blow to the pile. The technology reduces noise at the source during installation, ensuring a safe and environmental friendly installation.

In the improved concept that will be tested in a full-scale hammer in 2022 The resulting blows will:

  • Deliver higher forces
  • Deliver higher energy levels
  • Be fully controllable

The technology is expected to be tested at full-scale both onshore and offshore in 2022. After these tests the technology will be commercially available.

  • Very low underwater noise levels (SEL)
  • Low installation fatigue (SPL)
  • Easily scalable, allowing the further Growth of Monopiles
