The Waterhammer is a hydraulic impact piling hammer that is controlled with a radical hydraulic system that uses water instead of oil. It’s designed for piling jobs in (ultra) deep water. The Waterhammer can be used at water depths up to 2,000 meters. By using water, we eliminate the need to return the liquid medium back to surface, which saves on energy and makes it efficient. The Waterhammer can be used in every type of water (Salt or Fresh water) and is suitable for all piling jobs, like driving pipeline initiation piles, PLEM foundation piles, subsea template foundation piles, piles for jackets, conductors and mooring systems of FPSO’s, FSO’s and SMP’s.
ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY HYDRAULIC IMPACT HAMMERThe Waterhammer runs on water as a hydraulic oil alternative, which makes it an environmental friendly hammer. By using only water as medium, there will be no chance of hydraulic oil spills. This makes it also possible to use the hammer in areas where oil spill risk reduction is a high environmental project requirement. Besides this advantage, the hammer can also be used in several markets. While it’s designed for deep water and the Oil & Gas market, it has also been used in Coastal & Civil river and harbour projects. In addition, the Waterhammer is simply to control in the same way as our standard Hydrohammers with no energy or performance loss.
