Battery electric removal of steel sheet piling a success!
Greener power solutions and gebr. De Koning have successfully tested a battery electric energy solution for the removal of sheet pilling. This means that there is no longer a dependency on diesel generators for this type of work.
During the test Gebr. De Koning used an all-electric vibratory hammer to remove sheet pilling that had been in the ground for over 20 years. Up till now a large diesel generator would be necessary to deliver to electrical energy to power the hammer. During the test we proved that this work could also be executed using a Greener battery as the power source. The battery can be used as a stand-alone energy source for the hammer, but can also be used as a peak shaver on small grid connection like a 32 or 63 3-phase plug.
Looking at the outcome of the project, we call this a great succes. Both parties are investigating further deployment of the battery electric set-up. #GoGreener!
