Pin Piles - Shah Deniz II, Caspian Sea (2015)


Two (TANDEM) CV-230 vibro hammer sets (one as back-up) were supplied to the Shah Deniz Stage 2 project, one of the largest gas developments in the world.

Mobilisation of the set was in September 2014 as shipping routes freeze over during the winter months. The pin pile installation project itself started in February 2015.

Reason for equipment choice

  • Avoid risk of pile runs
  • Option to extract if out of tolerance
