Temporary Works Design (TWD) successfully completed the turnkey delivery of a Jacket Lifting Tool to Van Oord. Last Friday, the first jacket foundation for the East Anglia One offshore wind farm was successfully installed. The heavy lift vessel Bokalift One transported two jacket foundations to the installation site. The lightweight lifting tool was able to lift the 60m high jackets with ease and speeded up the installation sequence. The tool was officially handed over early February, fully load tested and certified.
TWD has a large track record in the offshore wind sector as well as in the design of offshore lifting tools. This knowledge has been incorporated in the design to realize this lightweight Jacket Lifting Tool with a lifting capacity of over 1.000 tonne while weighing just over 25 tonne itself.
Since this lifting tool will also be used for future installation projects, it is adaptable for different flange diameters. Furthermore,the tool ensures a safe and easy installation, without the need of crew accessing the top of the jacket by being fully remote controlled.
The simple and robust design can be tailored to meet specific needs and requirements, like lifting capacity, tugger arrangements and survey equipment.
