GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

With our in-house resources and expertise, we provide soil analysis and drive ability studies for more accurate foundation infrastructure ground modelling. We help customers to understand and overcome the challenges of seabed conditions in all water depths. Our analysis and data sets support our wider operations that cover the entire project life cycle, from quayside logistics through to pile handling, offshore installation, grouting and cable laying.

NON-IMPACT PILE INSTALLATIONS

Our non-impact technology enables an increase in the efficiency of pile installations. For homogeneous soil conditions, the vibratory hammer can install a pile quicker by liquidating the soil around the pile and reducing the soil stability. The penetration pace can be up to ten times faster compared to a conventional impact hammer. Vibratory hammers can also be updated with an upending mechanism, which reduces the need for additional equipment.

IMPACT PILE INSTALLATIONS

To enable our customers to install foundations in a variety of challenging conditions and various water depths, we offer an extensive rental fleet of hammers, including the most powerful one on the market that can deliver up to 4400 kJ of energy. Our hammers have been used on many of the world’s largest and most complex offshore wind projects; their modular design offers easy transportation, and in-region assembly and maintenance. We work with customers to address challenges associated with underwater noise limitations using our patented technology.

FULL BACK DECK SERVICE OFFERING

We provide design, fabrication, temporary works and service integration requirements to meet the individual needs of each project. We reduce project footprints and carbon emissions by optimising the use of deck space, offshore personnel and equipment whilst providing everything needed for foundation installation including drilling, grouting, pile cleaning, hammer spread and positioning tools.

RENEWABLES LIFTING EQUIPMENT

As your foundation installation partner, we offer design, fabrication and operation of standard and custom-built equipment for the lifting and handling of piles and structures. For multi-equipment and large monopiles, our streamlined approach provides the capability for lean operation and repeatability, resulting in reduced rig time and avoiding rig-change time by eliminating liftcycles during installation sequences.

XL MONOPILE DRIVE-DRILL-DRIVE

We provide an integrated solution to install monopiles in challenging seabed conditions using a combination of driving and drilling. Our hammers have been used on many of the world’s largest and most complex offshore wind projects; their modular design offers easy transportation and in-region assembly and maintenance.

HIGH OUTPUT GROUT SOLUTION

Our high-output grouting solution increases grout delivery rates and reduces the number of vessel days required. This also allows for larger voids to be filled in a single operation.

Comprehensive HV

HIGH VOLTAGE CABLE SERVICES

We project manage and integrate cable installation and maintenance to provide our customers with a single interface and a clear picture of project responsibilities. This helps us to boost project efficiency and repeatability through leaner operations. At Acteon, we have extensive experience in cable and umbilical projects, which means we can produce detailed installation plans and ensure safe and secure installation. Our HV services deliver excellent performance, higher efficiency and lower production costs.

THE BENEFITS OF HOW WE WORK

  • WE INSTALL FOUNDATIONS IN CHALLENGING CONDITIONS WE INSTALL FOUNDATIONS IN CHALLENGING CONDITIONS

    Our unique deep-water hammer system is equipped for use in ultradeep water and our drive–drill–drive installation method alleviates installation risks in hard soil.

  • WE MINIMISE FOUNDATION AND CABLE INSTALLATION COSTS WE MINIMISE FOUNDATION AND CABLE INSTALLATION COSTS

    Acteon equipment is built to take up less space, be maintained easily and deliver quick operations. We challenge specifications and optimise construction processes through early engagement, in-house logistics and localised resources.

  • WE OPTIMISE DECK SPACE AND STREAMLINE OPERATIONS WE OPTIMISE DECK SPACE AND STREAMLINE OPERATIONS

    We use multi-skilled technicians to reduce POB. Sharing of common equipment and integration with vessel equipment eliminates duplication, whilst a focus on logistics avoids double handling.
