Read more about Upending Vibratory Hammers

This biggest mono vibratory hammer in the world weighs 108,000 kg and has a lifting capacity of another 301,000 kilograms. The Vibro hammer has 500kgm of eccentric moment and is driven by two power units that supply 3,200 litres of hydraulic oil under a pressure of 320 bar. This 500MU is a 12-eccentric vibratory hammer. A separate electric-hydraulic power pack powers the Upend system. The upend system allows the machine to tilt and pick up a horizontal stored tube. This saves a lot of time and makes additional auxiliary installations unnecessary. But the real gain is for the sea life because vibro installation is the least harmful technique.


This unique Upending Vibratory Hammer is part of our rental fleet. The 500MU provides a real USP when deck space is limited.

The 500MU is based on the PVE 500M

Over the past two years Dieseko engineers have focused on the engineering of this new machine. It is the largest vibratory hammer ever built! The engineering challenges led to important innovations including a newly designed tilting bracket, increased lifting capacity, as well as a hydraulic safety lock that is activated during the pile upending procedure.

Power & Emission

Low-emission and zero-emission are key. This important aspect is also part of Dieseko’s strategy. Two coupled PVE 1600, Stage-V, Power Packs provide the required 3,200L oil flow. Controlling the clamps and the upending and locking system is done with a 100% emission-free electric-hydraulic power unit.

Our team has great drive and enthusiasm to support and accelerate the energy transition by innovative foundation solutions. This new 500MU development is a great example of that.”

Based on the 300MU, The first upending vibro hammer ever

The PVE 500MU is a further development of the patented PVE 300MU Upending Vibratory Hammer. Dieseko’s Upending concept was first introduced in 2012 at the Global Tech I wind farm in Germany.

300MU in Hochtief Global Tech I project

In this project 240 PIN piles, up to 60 meters in length were picked up, positioned and vibrated directly for the first time in history, without an auxiliary crane. With this efficient way of installation, Dieseko opened the eyes of the world to the use of Vibratory Hammers in offshore applications.

We test, test and test until everything is 100% secured to perform perfectly.”
