1. A method for manufacturing a sheet pile wall component having a longitudinal edge and at least one interlock at the longitudinal edge;

  • the at least one interlock being a profiled section that is integral with a remaining section of the sheet pile wall component, the at least one interlock having a uniform cross-section extending across an entire length of the sheet pile wall component, for engaging an interlock of an additional sheet pile wall component, said method comprising the steps of;

    producing a preliminary product through forming, wherein a material accumulation is formed during the forming of the preliminary product at a section that is to be provided with the at least one interlock while the remaining section is free of material accumulation; and

    shape-cutting the at least one interlock at a section of the preliminary product that is to be provided with the at least one interlock, wherein the cross-section of said material accumulation is dimensioned sufficiently upon forming such that dimensional deviations caused by the forming of the preliminary product are taken into account for the shape-cutting of the at least one interlock.
