PDA largest impact hammer in the world

On February 6, 2013 Allnamics performed PDA monitoring with the in-house developed wireless PDR system during a test drive by Heerema Marine Contractors in the Rotterdam harbour.  The test drive was performed on allegedly the highest capacity pile in the Netherlands (diameter 2.1 m and a length of 163 m!) and the objective of the test drive was to try out HMC's latest impact hammer.  This hammer, a MHU 3500S from Menck, is the largest in the world with an energy of no less than 3500 kJ.


The monitoring was a complete success, and Allnamics succeeded in performing PDA wirelessly over a distance of more than 100 m!
