HOW TO MEET STRICT INSTALLATION TOLERANCES WITH A PRE-PILING TEMPLATE?

28/09/2021|Blog|

With offshore wind farms moving to deeper water, and the WTG also increasing in size we see other foundations than the good old monopile. When using a jacket foundation a pre-piling template helps to speed up the installation process. However, this is only useful when the pre-piling template guarantees that the required installation tolerances are met. So the question is, how are you going to install a structure of approx. 1000t on the seabed under the exact angle and with millimetre precision. HEADING A template cannot be installed on the seabed in a random position. It has to be ...

3 CRITERIA TO KEEP IN MIND FOR YOUR NEXT PRE-PILING TEMPLATE

18/06/2021|Blog|

When installing an offshore wind turbine in 50-80 meter water depth, using a jacket foundation is an obvious choice. To install the pin-piles for the jacket, a pre-piling template is an excellent structure to ensure precise installation. Moving to new areas with different circumstances brings along new operational challenges. A few examples: Deeper water In 2015 the average water depth of offshore wind farms was 27 meters. The current wind farms under construction see water depths of 40 up to 50 meters. Deeper water means longer piles, which has a direct impact on the equipment involved. Increasing workability Piling ...

INCREASE WORKABILITY OF AN OFFSHORE TOOL WITH INNOVATION OR WITH ADDING SIMPLICITY?

01/06/2021|Blog|

Designing the most complex tool is never the issue. Design and build an innovative tool that increases workability, that is the challenge. Innovation is about being clever. Sometimes adding functionality and a higher level of automation to your tool is a clever way to increase workability. However, there are also situations in which innovation lies in a simplification of existing methods and equipment. SIMPLIFYING OPERATIONS In the last 20 years (yes, it is our anniversary year!), we have seen and delivered many different offshore tools. We have won the trust of our clients not only by making tools more ...
