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
