Compressors for underwater hammering

Underwater hammering is an essential process used in marine construction and offshore drilling to install and remove large structures like piers, bridges, and oil platforms. This technique involves the use of high-powered hydraulic hammers that transmit impact energy to the seabed, effectively breaking up hard rock formations and compacted sediment.

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.
