Other equipment

Our clients’ visionary engineering projects can only be carried out by the best people working with the latest technology. That is why Van Oord operates the world’s most advanced fleet and equipment.

Soil compaction equipment

Soil compaction is a technique used to improve the load-bearing capacity of soil. A vibro-compaction rig or an excavator equipped with a compaction hammer can compact large surfaces. Van Oord’s Wicks business unit caries out soil improvement activities and installs horizontal and vertical drainage. 

In the picture: jack-up barge WaveWalker

The WaveWalker is an innovative jack-up barge that operates in conventional four-legged mode, or as an eight legged self-contained walking jack-up platform. This large walking jack-up barge, which can operate safely and bi-directionally while elevated, was developed to move and operate in rough seas, surf zones, beaches, and other intertidal locations. The WaveWalker allows Van Oord to undertake geotechnical site investigations, drilling, and other underwater activities from a stable platform with the added benefit of relocation without floating.
