Press-in piling installation of steel sheet piles by Vanthek is vibration-free and low-noise.

Aside from vibratory-driven piling using a silent piler, the Vanthek Group has developed equipment (Quatro piler) that can be used for pressing, including four clamps that move independently from one another. Pressing steel sheet piles is vibration-free and low-noise.

Sheet piles are installed to prevent soil or water from reaching quay walls, bridgeheads, basements, construction pits, tunnels and parking garages.

This technique is often used for projects involving areas or surroundings that require consideration with regard to vibration or noise emission. Think, for example, of fragile old town centres; monuments, hospitals or data centres. Excessive noise or vibration can have undesired consequences when it comes to fragile foundations or sensitive equipment.

This technique involves the use of a Silent Piler to install or remove sheet piles. By pre-drilling or applying fluidation in the process, it's possible to install or remove sheet piles in high density soil layers vibration-free. Would you like to know more about the technique or application of the Silent Piler then please feel free to contact us.

Hek Quattro Piler (HQP) for all sheet pile profiles

The Hek Quattro Piler is a sheet pile pressing machine developed by us, including four clamps that can move independently, thanks to the use of cylinders. The machine grasps four sheet pile profiles that have been connected at ones, and places them in a vertical position on the ground level.

For the firmer soil layers, sufficient response resistance is generated to press the profiles vibration-free into the ground in sections of 550 mm. Since 2015 Vanthek International has also developed two ABI-printing machines; compact and flexible sheet pile pressing that operates according to the same principle as the HQP.


Sheet pile pressing has a number of benefits:

  • The method is vibration-free and low-noise - ideal for environmentally sensative areas
  • Ability to work remotely from acces roads wherever there's restricted access
  • Ideal for use over water
  • Suitable for both cohesive and granular soils
