Underwater Hammering

Beside other technologies, deep water ramming is still the most common method for securing platforms to the seabed. The hydro-hammer works under atmospheric conditions, and compressed air is needed to evacuate the hammer underwater for proper operation. The high pressure air is guided to the hammer by umbilicals.
