And whats the problem? The discussion was about the amount of piles, the length and how long work goes on. Imre posted only the facts! Thank you very much Imre!

Don't panic, in three months Pol-Aqua has did more than 2 500 piles in the ground of our National Stadium in Warsaw (Poland). I think, that 250 piles need less than month . Ofcourse there is a question about the length of the piles at Penominium construction site...

Not only length (up to 65 meters) but also the very restrictive size of the plot they're working on which constitute a huge logistic challenge.

Well according to my knowledge, driving 1 pile only requires 1 hour.

^

Well do you want fast construction and fast sinking?

Looks like good progress here. The upcoming months will be crusial to see if this one really gets build or will be on hold after the piling is done.

I know the marina will look different when it is fianally done but hopefully they can blend some white into it too so it can maybe also fit in with the other buildings around it.
