However, we made sure to consult with stakeholders and houseboat owners keeping them informed on developments. More than two-thirds of the Shoreham Adur tidal walls flood defence scheme has now been completed. A major component to making good progress has been the use of the Giken press piling train to drive in the steel piles. In addition to being relatively silent and vibration free there are advantages: We would like to thank everyone in Shoreham-by-Sea for their continued patience and support.

Sheet pile extraction can also be undertaken using the pile press.

The Giken silent piling equipment allows the construction of the steel pile walls with no vibration and very little noise. Chesham EM10, Metropolitan Line.

Silent & Vibration-Free Piling Installation

Skip to main content. A Power Bridge Road — Revisited. Piles can be pole into most soils, but each soil requires a different technique. In the W5 reach we have had to install some 1, sheet piles — each one 11 metres long.

The vibration free piling methods suit a wide range of applications are pie vibration would cause damage to existing heritage structures, weak foundations or sensitive underground services. Find out more about cookies. Giken are renowned worldwide for their alternative Silent Piling technologies, specialising in the vibrationless installation of piles in reduced access work areas.


If noise and vibration levels generated are a potential problem, or where the project is governed by environmental constraints, sheet pile installation and extraction using silent and vibration free equipment is a possible solution — this method is commonly known as gikdn pressing. The WP Piler is ideal for installing piles adjacent to properties or plie. Thanks to their cooperation, we were able to continue the pile driving works in this reach without closing a larger area to the public.

Gravels can present difficulties due to high end bearing resistance being generated and the need to displace individual particles.

An offset of mm from the pile centre line to a structure or boundary can usually be achieved. The W5 reach is scheduled for reopening this autumn. Giken crush pilers were used recently on the McKinnon rail crossing removal project installing sheet piles in the rail corridor close to residences around the clock on both day and plie shifts. It will take only 2 minutes to fill in. Scheme contract partners Team Van Oord developed a stakeholder engagement programme to set out the process to obtain the agreements and the roles of project team organisations at each stage.

A detailed explanation of the piler operation can be obtained in our Silent Piling Brochure.

Once complete, it will reduce the tidal flood risk to thousands of homes and commercial properties in the area, as well as protecting important local infrastructure such as roads, railway lines and Shoreham Airport.


Silent Sheet Piling The introduction of Japanese piling presses into the UK in the early s brought a much needed method of sheet pile installation that produced minimal vibration, very low noise levels and could cope with the variable soil strata encountered.

For general information on how to prepare for flooding and the latest flood warnings in force please visit our floodline page or ring Floodline on These areas have over-wintering silwnt populations and significant areas of pie and mudflat. Several techniques are available to overcome problems and achieve pile penetration.

The planning process needed to be carefully managed to ensure that stakeholder agreements were completed on time because of the specialist Giken press piling train required to install the sheet piles. A Team Van Oord spokesperson said: Explore the topic River maintenance, flooding and coastal erosion. Share this page Share on Facebook Share on Twitter.

The work was complicated by being close to 40 houseboats along a stretch of m. Silentt pressing enables the installation and extraction of sheet piles with no vibration and minimum noise levels.
