VIDEO: Bilfinger Demonstrates Vibration Piling Procedure

In Cuxhaven in Lower Saxony, Germany, Bilfinger is supporting RWE and other energy providers by testing what is known as the vibration piling procedure.

This enables wind park foundations to be counterbored into the seabed by loosening the sand with vibrations, which allows the pile to sink in under the pressure of its own weight.

The pilot project is set to considerably lower the costs of future European offshore wind parks.
