Blue Piling Technology

Fistuca

www.fistuca.com/bluepiling

BLUE Piling Technology (patent pending) is a revolutionary new technology for driving large piles offshore. The technology breaks with the tradition of using larger and larger impact hammers to drive piles offshore but instead utilizes what is abundantly available offshore... water! The technology creates the pile driving energy with a combustion, thereby accelerating a large column of water. The pile driving cycle is shown schematically in the movie underneath.helloe
