The difference in driving speed between conventional hammering and a Vibratory Hammer - Saving significant installation time for OWF Monopiles

Increasing installation efficiency is a key component of LCOE reduction for the offshore wind industry. By reducing the installation time for key components such as Monopiles, significant savings on vessel hire can be made.

The 2018 average installation rate, where the vessel installed both monopiles and transition pieces, is 2.27 Days per Foundation (DpF). When using Vibratory Technology the DpF can drastically been reduced.

These video's were made during a comparison test in Germany and what you see is the actual speed. For the test we used the exact same Monopiles and exact same soil conditions. Besides the installation speed advantage, vibrating technology is less harmful to the sub-sea environment (Marine mammals, fish and other sealife) because of the much lower noise level during installation.

ICE 416L renovates dams in France

In 2013, an agreement was signed between the French Waterways (VNF) and BAMEO to replace 29 dams, six in Aisne river and 23 in the Meuse. Three years ago Vinci Construction and its subcontractors started this prestigious project. The contractor agreed to finish the replacement of the dams within five years.

In both rivers, automatic dams are placed, equipped with inflatable membranes at the water. In addition to the 29 dams that are being replaced, two dams in the Meuse are re-commissioned. The network of dams is provided with turbines which are connected to a hydro-electric micro station. This contributes to the production of energy locally.

The foundation work for these dams is performed by the ICE 416L vibratory hammer, with a single and double clamp. This normal frequency hammer has a great pulling force and is widely used. Vinci Construction operates ten dams at the same time this year, which means that ten vibratory hammers are used simultaneously.  

Three Woltman machines at work at the same project

Due to the quick growth of supermarket chain Lidl, the company is in the need for a new distribution center. Moerdijk, a city located in the west of the Netherlands, is the place where this distribution center will be built. In only two months’ time, 3500 piles need to be piled into the soil, an enormous project with a strict deadline. In order to achieve this deadline, contractor Voorbij Funderingstechniek partnered up with Terracon Funderingstechniek and Ballast Nedam. Three Woltman 160PR piling rigs are used to drive the 40m piles into the solid ground. Due to the stability and low center point of gravity, these drilling rigs are the perfect machines to do the job.

Low underwater sound levels with PVE 500M

As noise disturbance is getting more attention because of changing regulations and increasing public concern, Dieseko Group invests in solutions that minimize noise pollution. Recently an external expert carried out an independent test to measure underwater sound levels during the dismantling of offshore wind farm Lely.


Four piles having a diameter between 3200 mm and 3700 mm and a length of 26 m long were removed from the seabed by our largest vibratory hammer, the PVE 500M. The hammer creates a centrifugal force of almost 1100 mt at 500 kgm eccentric moment and 1400 rpm. The PVE 500M was not equipped with soundproofing measures, in order to understand the effect of our basic design. 
The results of the measurements are very promising. The German authorities, by means of the BMU 2013 “Konzept für den Schutz der Schweinswale vor Schallbelastungen bei der Errichtung von Offshore-Windparks in der deutschen Nordsee (Schallschutzkonzept)”, prescribes threshold values of 160 dB re 1μPa²s as a maximum Sound Exposure Level (SEL) and 190 dB re 1μPa as a maximum peak Sound Pressure Level (SPLpeak-peak) both at 750m from the source. 

The equivalent values obtained during several tests with Dieseko Group vibrators are 112 – 135 dB re 1μPa²s and 132 – 161 dB re 1μPa, which are substantially lower than the maximum allowed levels at 750m from the source. 
Therefore, it can be concluded that the application of Dieseko Group’s vibratory hammering techniques do significantly contribute to underwater noise reductions at offshore piling projects.

Dieseko Group launches out during Infratech 2017

From January 17th to 20th, Infratech took place, the most important exhibition for the infrastructure industry in the Netherlands. Dieseko Group launched out with a beautiful and outstanding booth, with an important eye catcher: the PVE RD260 Resonator. This foundation machine, that drives profiles without vibration because of the resonance technique, is a true innovation in the industry. The Resonator gained a lot of interest during the exhibition.

Jolanda van den Brink, Sales Director Benelux: “We are very satisfied with the number of visitors of the exhibition, and more specifically with the interest for our foundation solutions. Infratech is an important fair where we traditionally meet a lot of customers. We notice there is need for product innovation in our industry, the Resonator is a great example of such an innovative solution.”

Commercial bulletin: mega series

Read our commercial bulletin about our largest vibratory hammers, the mega size PVE vibratory hammers. These hammers have been working all over the world at prestigious projects where they have proved more than its worth.

PVE 500M dismantles wind farm Lely in only 3 hours

The heaviest single PVE vibratory hammer of Dieseko Group successfully dismantled wind farm Lely in the Netherlands. The Nuon Lely offshore wind farm was built in 1992 and had to be dismantled. After 24 years the wind farm was approaching the end of its life cycle and was becoming less profitable. 

The dismantling of the wind turbines started in October 2016. The PVE 500M was used to extract the foundation of the wind turbines. Four piles, each 26m long and with a diameter of 3.20 to 3.70m, were removed one by one from the seabed and carried off via pontoons. Because of the enormous centrifugal force of the vibratory hammer, the piles were extracted in only 45 minutes each. The PVE 500M, which is a combination of two 250 kgm carters patented according to our GIANT system, has proven once again to have the power to extract 70 to 80 tons piles without any problems. The PVE 500M is a reliable vibratory hammer which managed to do the job in record time. The project is successfully executed by Hebo Maritiemservice.

During this project the Dieseko Group R&D department carried out several underwater sound tests. The main goal is to gain more insights in sound effects. Results will be shared in a later stage.   

Dieseko Group nominated for Business Event Alblasserwaard

We are very honoured to be nominated for the Business Event Alblasserwaard. Together with two other organisations we have been selected in the category ‘Industry and Services’.

On November 14th the final winner will be announced during a festive award ceremony.

Dieseko Group hosts NVAF members

More than twenty members of the NVAF (a Dutch Association for Contractors) visited Dieseko Group during their meeting for member who regularly work with sheet piles. The members attended several interesting presentations about innovations in the foundation industry and got to know Dieseko Group better. Furthermore they enjoyed a tour around the site and a demonstration of the Resonator and the 110MU upending vibratory hammer. After the informative program they enjoyed drinks, snacks and a dinner, which was being served via food trucks.

PVE 250M extracts 36m piles for largest sea lock in the world

In the beginning of September 2016 the construction of a new sea sluice in IJmuiden (the Netherlands) has started. This new and larger sea lock is designed to improve the accessibility of the harbour of Amsterdam and to stimulate the economic situation of the region, by offering tidal independent space to ever growing sea ships. The new sea lock will be the largest one in the world. Its dimensions will be 500 meters long, 70 meters wide and 18 meters deep. 

The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment is the principal of this project, which is conducted by constructor consortium OpenIJ. Dutch companies BAM-PGGM, VolkerWessels and Dutch Infrastructure Fund are part of this consortium. These parties are responsible for the design, realisation, finance and maintenance of the sea lock for the next 26 years.

A large and prestigious project like this should be tested in advance, to make sure the process will run as smooth as possible. Several test piles have been driven in preparation of this project to make sure the right equipment for the job has been chosen. After this test phase, the 36 meter piles had to be extracted. To achieve this, the PVE 250M has been used. This ironclad normal frequency vibratory hammer of Dieseko Group extracted the piles without any problems. Nothing stands in the way to build the largest sea lock in the world, which is expected to be completed in 2019.

PVE 35VM shapes Pier in Scheveningen

PVE 900 powers largest switch plug for windmills at sea

Renewable energy is getting more familiar in our society. That is why organisations are looking for different ways to generate renewable energy. There are various ways to do so, generating wind energy at sea is one of them. Tennet, electricity transmission system operator, is one of the parties with an extended infrastructure for offshore power supplies. In 2015 Tennet installed, together with Boskalis, the DolWin2 beta converter platform in the German part of the North Sea. This installation is the ninth main connection in this part of the North Sea and is the largest and most powerful platform in the world. 

Windmills at sea generate AC. AC is being collected at a collection point, in this case the DolWin2 beta converter platform. This platform converts AC to DC, which makes it possible to transport DC via sea. Whenever DC reaches the land, it is being converted into AC again.

Fundamenta reported H-beam load test results in Santos (Sao Paolo).

At the building site Fundamenta compared hammering vs vibrating. The H-beam was driven with a hydraulic impact hammer of Mait and in the same area a smaller H-beam was driven with the HKV 1100 vibratory hammer.
After 18 days the soil was closed and a PIT-test (static load test) was made on both piles.
The load test proved the superiority of the vibrating technique. With a smaller beam the load charge is better and the soil is improved. Other positive points reported: less noise pollution during driving, easy penetrating and less ressonance.
Fundamenta is very happy with the results. Finally they have a proven method for driving beams without hammer blasting. In the urban areas of Sao Paolo the Variable Moment has proven to be quiet, fast and reliable!
