On December 8, 2014, the Dutch company VandeGrijp started the production of our phase 4 hammer. The hammer will be tested thoroughly in 2015, both on- and offshore. The onshore tests are expected to take place at the Tweede Maasvlakte. This hammer can be used to drive piles with a top diameter up to 3…(Read More)

On June 26, 2014, Fistuca performed a successful test driving a concrete pile using BLUE Piling Technology. This test demonstrates that BLUE Piling Technology can drive concrete piles with hardly any tensile stresses. Tensile stress-free pile driving opens up a myriad of possibilities for offshore foundation designs based on pre-tensioned concrete piles, which…(Read More)

Offshore windturbines are typically mounted on large hollow steel piles (monopiles) driven in the seabed. Today, Fistuca tested a new method for extracting these piles completely using water pressure. The pile was driven in one month earlier, using BLUE Piling Technology, a revolutionary pile driving method also based on water. By closing off the top…(Read More)

Wind Power Offshore magazine recently published a special report on new foundation types needed for future offshore wind projects, such as the newer XL monopiles. Bringing the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of monopiles to deeper water presents unprecedented challenges, yet by nature, BLUE Piling Technology is specifically suited to meet these challenges…(Read More)
