The Vibro-drill machine is designed to install monopiles to target depth in soil of different types: sand, clay and layered soils.
With GBM's Vibro-drill soil friction on (the outside of) a monopile is reduced. The Vibro-drill transfers it's vibrations from the downside of the pile. This reduces the energy loss that occurs when vibrations are transmitted through the steel.
The Vibro-drill is standard equipped with Jet-gun functionality. It is attached to the bottom of the monopile with clamps for installation in the cylinder. The Jet-gun function guarantees the fluidized state of the soil on the inside of the pile so that the Vibro-drill can be retrieved after installation.
