About this event

The technology creates the pile driving energy using combustion generated pressures to accelerate a large column of water onto the pile head.

The longer blow duration in comparison to standard steel ram pile drivers, allows significant reductions in both the noise generated and fatigue damage to the pile during pile installation.

The technology allows silent, cost-effective installation with lower fatigue levels of the largest piles in the world.


Tea and coffee will be available from 17:30.

This event will be broadcast online, details for which will be issued to OES and BGA members by email prior to the meeting.
