    Results of a project testing vibratory method of pile driving have shown the method generates less noise and is up to ten times faster, compared to the impact hammering. The project, carried out by RWE Innogy, Bilfinger Offshore, DONG Energy, EnBW, E.ON and Vattenfall under the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator programme, involved a comparison of the conventional method of impact hammering with […]
