What is the Pile Guiding & Positioning Frame?

The Pile Guiding & Positioning Frame (PGPF) is an innovative design that can be used for guidance of foundation piles during upending and for positioning of these piles during pile driving. This tool guarantees the accurate positioning of monopile by upending directly on pile position. PGPF also eliminates any extra transfer and vertical pile movement in order to maximise operational efficiency.

How does the Pile Guiding & Positioning Frame work?

The Pile Guiding & Positioning Frame has maximum handling of pile diameters up to 6,000 millimetres, with a 700-ton hook holding capacity; which will be used to create contact with the pile and upending directly on pile position, ensuring the accurate positioning of the pile. During pile driving, PGPF can be used to adjust the verticality of the pile with a maximum tilting motion of ± 6˚, and an upending angle range of 0° – 93°. This eliminates any extra vertical movement of the pile, increasing crane efficiency and significantly reducing installation time.
