IHC S-600

This IHC S-600 hammer has been used for many years for driving a variety of platform piles both above and under water. The hammer pile sleeve enables Seaway Heavy Lifting to drive piles of up to 72 in outside diameter directly. The hammer sleeve requires the pile to protrude at the end of driving by approximately 3.8 m. A front follower must be used where the driven pile is to be flush with the template or the jacket pile sleeve.

This hydraulic underwater hammer is a universal pile-driving tool for use in air and under water. The hammer generates an energy level of up to 600 kNm. One advantage of this type of hydraulic hammer is that the energy applied per blow can be continuously adjusted from 5 to 100% during the piling operation. The hammer is computer controlled, which enables the operator to adjust the hammer’s performance parameters very precisely.
