What is the Flanged Pile Upending Tool?

Our Flanged Pile Upending Tool is specifically designed to upend and lift large diameter piles with an integrated flange. The tool installs monopiles safely while it is remotely operable, which means no direct human interference is needed during the installation. In addition, the monopiles do not require secondary steel, which makes the FPUT an even more efficient tool.

At IQIP, we have two types of Flanged Pile Upending Tools. One tool for smaller piles, and one for the pile upending and lifting of the biggest monopiles in the world.

Discover how the tool operates

During a typical operation, we stab the Flanged Pile Upending Tool into the monopile while it is horizontally stored on board. After stabbing the monopile, the latches connect underneath the pile top flange connection and create a fail-safe connection. This connection ensures that there will be no markings on your monopiles during this part of the installation sequence.

The tool installs flanged monopiles safely while being remotely controlled by operators on board. In addition, during the upending and lifting of monopiles, the FPUT will use the geometry of the pile for support. Our Advisory Services can support you during your project with calculations for the monopiles and flange connections.
