The Stacking Frame is the tool specifically utilised to stack and handle multiple foundation piles on the deck of an installation vessel, allowing for the most effective utilization of deck space. The Stacking Frame is fully operated using hydraulic power and can be used in conjunction with other equipment that supports the upending process, like the Saddle & Hook, or Pile Guiding & Positioning Frame.
In essence, the Stacking Frame serves the purpose of efficiently organizing and managing multiple foundation piles on an installation vessel’s deck. Its hydraulic operation enables safe and smooth handling of the piles, and when combined with other upending-support equipment, it enhances the overall efficiency of the process. This enables offshore construction projects to be conducted more smoothly and optimizes the use of available deck space on the vessel.
