Silent offshore foundation pile installation

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: Not founded yet

Location: The Netherlands

GBM Works developed the Active Pile Driving Tip, a new method for installing offshore wind turbine foundations. The product is an alternative method for the installation of offshore foundation (mono)piles with a focus on offshore wind.

This method is silent, faster and more efficient than current installation methods. Fatigue issues due to the use of a heavy hydraulic hammer will also be eliminated. The use of the Active Pile Driving Tip and its benefits will lead to a faster and more environmental friendly transition towards renewable energy.
