IQIP and TU Delft join forces to improve the BLUE Piling TechnologyIQIP and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) have started their joint work on the monopile drivability investigation of the BLUE Piling Technology. BLUE Piling Technology reduces underwater noise levels by creating a gentler blow to install offshore monopiles.
 
IQIP is currently testing improvements in the technology on a small-scale hammer and these improvements will be implemented in a full-scale hammer next year. Meanwhile, a team of geotechnical experts at the section of Geo-engineering at TU Delft are investigating the details of the soil-pile interaction during installation using physical, analytical and numerical modelling techniques. A miniature scale of the BLUE Hammer is being designed and constructed at TU Delft, and will be combined with an instrumented model monopile to conduct detailed parametric studies on the complex soil-pile-water interactions in various conditions.
