Sustainable monopile decommissioning, one step closer to circularity

The Hydraulic Pile Extraction – Scale Tests (HyPE-ST) project aimed at both the fundamental understanding and the demonstration of the feasibility of hydraulically extracting monopiles for decommis

Gentle Driving of Piles Demonstration Site

Twist the cork and it becomes thinner

Currently, monopiles are mostly driven into the seabed by hydraulic impact piling (hammering). This causes too much noise during driving and each hammer blow has a high impact on the monopile.
