BLUE PILING

Reduce noise during installation – even with the largest monopiles

The BLUE Piling™ technology can be used to install the largest monopiles in the world and reduces noise at the source during installation. The technology uses the impact of a large water mass over a long period to create a pushing force on the pile.

As a result, the vibrations of the pile wall are reduced significantly. The BLUE Piling technology allows for very large pile diameters, making it perfectly suited for the next generation of monopiles.

“By reducing underwater noise levels at the source directly, the industry can save millions of euros on noise mitigation measures.”

Blue Piling in action

Onshore test Blue Piling Technology

BLUE Piling technology is an innovative piling solution that uses the deceleration of a large water mass contained in a water vessel to deliver a long-lasting blow to the pile. The technology reduces noise at the source during installation, ensuring a safe and environmentally friendly installation.

BLUE PILING TECHNOLOGY IN 2023

Our ambitions

The technology is expected to be tested at full-scale in 2023. After these tests the technology will be commercially available.

Piling for offshore installations in Europe is restricted by precautionary regulations for underwater noise and its effect on sea life. This limitation during construction increases the cost price. IQIP has found a way for you to enlarge your installation window and reduce costs with innovative technology for effective noise mitigation.
