Building on the reliable technology of IQIP’s world class S Series of Hydrohammers, the innovative IQ Series delivers IQIP’s largest hammers for intelligent pile driving on a grand scale.

IQIP introduced the IQ Series in September 2022. Developed in response to the growing size of wind turbines for the increased production of renewable energy, the Hydrohammer IQ Series pushes the boundaries of current technologies to facilitate the installation of the world’s largest monopiles.
