WHAT IS THE HYDROHAMMER?

The Hydrohammer – impact hammer can be used for driving steel, anchor and concrete piles for conductors, jackets, tripods, mooring systems, monopiles and starter piles. It installs piles efficiently, safely and can be used in combination with our Noise Reduction System, The Integrated Monopile Installer and C-36.

Discover how the Hydrohammer works

Hydraulic impact hammers can easily be controlled in drop height and energy, resulting in a more efficient pile driving process. Here we show how it works.

IN 30+ YEARS WE DEVELOPED MULTIPLE RANGES OF HAMMERS

MEET THE HYDROHAMMER FAMILY

THE S-SERIES  

  • Hydrohammer S-30 to S-5500 (30kJ – 5500kJ) 
  • Oil driven
  • Designed for driving steel piles / profiles
  • Can be used for driving free standing anchor piles through the Fast or Slotted Frame 
  • Can drive monopiles up to 10m in diameter


THE WATERHAMMER

  •  S-90W and S-500W Waterhammer (90 KJ – 500 KJ)
  • Water driven
  • Developed for deep underwater pile driving, up to a depth of 2000m

Why rent/purchase the Hydrohammer?

With its unique design the hammer makes it suitable for all types of onshore and offshore piling and foundation work, ranging from starter piles to the biggest monopiles in the world, up to 10 m in diameter. The hammer has been active since 1984 and developed an extensive track record in the Civil Engineering, Oil & Gas and Offshore Wind & Renewables markets. Our Hydrohammer rental fleet comes in a diverse range of series: the S-Series and the Waterhammer.

Say hello to the Hydrohammer S-4000

The Hydrohammer S-4000 installs the biggest monopiles in the offshore wind market. Curious about the size of the S-4000? Watch the mobilisation. With a length of approximately 19m and a weight of 430 tons, this was quite the job!

THE ADVANTAGES OF THE HYDROHAMMER

  • Efficient pile driving steel to steel
  • Very low down time rate
  • Advanced piling techniques available, such as HiLo (high frequency, low energy) driving in order to minimise fatigue damage and noise reduction
  • Verifiable piling records for pre-and post-analysis assessments
  • Additional 1G-power acceleration of ram weight through gas spring
  • Pile Inclination Measurement Equipment (PIME) for measuring the level of inclination
  • Full energy at nearly all positions (0 – 90 degrees)
  • Infinetly adjustable energy up to 100%

FREQUENT ASKED QUESTIONS

Which Hydrohammer do I use for my project?

That depends, but we give customed advice. Whether you are active in infrastructure, industrial, utilities or residential construction, the common goal is to construct a reliable foundation that withstands significant loads in any type of soil. Choosing the correct pile foundation, and installing it in an optimum way, is crucial. We are dedicated to helping you achieve these goals. Our combination of expertise and innovative equipment allows you to construct every type of foundation pile: concrete or steel; precast or cast in situ; and drilled or driven.
