Thanks to the operator consortium led by Trianel GmbH, the companies BioConsult and ITAP, the University of Hanover, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, and, last but not least, the engineering company HYDROTECHNIK LÜBECK GMBH, the Big Bubble Barrier was able to be integrated into the systemic process of the construction phase under realistic conditions, be researched and further developed on a large scale. For the first time, it was possible to comply with and even fall below the specification of a maximum of 160 db hydro noise as standard.
Trianel Windpark Borkum created the basis for further developing the system up to today’s “state of the art”.
In the meantime, depending on the requirements, up to 2 hose rings are placed around a ramming point, and special compressors are used that generate oil-free compressed air. The Big Bubble Barrier is used worldwide not only for pile driving but also for underwater ammunition blasting.
