After 2 years of intense efforts Heerema Marine Contractors successfully took delivery last week of a monopile tip lifting tool (MTLT) and a top monopile lifting tool (MPUT/FMUT). The tools will enable upending and installing monopiles by means of using 2 cranes.

 

 

Designed, fabricated and load tested under DNV rules and regulations by F.lli Righini Srl. the tools are fully equipped with special features. These include circular design to make tools suitable to be used for flanged and non-flanged monopile with various range of diameters and weights. The tools represent a major milestone in the offshore wind industry.

 

 

Chris de Ruiter, manager of nop Floating Equipment at Heerema Marine Contractors, greatly appreciated the efforts of both teams and sends congratulations to both the Righini team and the HMC team for the successful delivery of these impressive tools which is again another example of their combined efforts making the impossible possible offshore.

 

 

The tools are now in transit to the first project, the EnBW He Dreiht Wind park consisting of the installation of 64 non flanged monopiles executed by SSCV Thialf.
