A timber pile of length $8 \: m$ and diameter $0.2 \: m$ is driven with a $20 \: kN$ drop hammer, falling freely from a height of $1.5 \: m$. The total penetration of the pile in the last $5$ blows is $40 \: mm$. Use the Engineering News Record expression. Assume a factor of safety of $6$ and empirical factor (allowing reduction in the theoretical set, due to energy losses) of $2.5 \: cm$. The safe load carrying capacity of the pile (in $kN$, round off to $2$ decimal places) is __________
