Meet the Pile Upending Tool

During an operation, we stab the Pile Upending Tool into the monopile while it’s 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 also ensures that your monopiles stay in perfect condition during this part of the installation sequence.

Our Pile Upending Tool makes it possible to raise monopiles efficiently and place the pile in the needed position. The same actually applies to our Flanged Pile Upending tool, which is specially designed for XL piles with a flange. The tool installs flanged monopiles safely while being remotely controlled by operators on board. The Flanged Pile Upending Tool has lifting capacities up to 1,600t, with an XL version with larger capacity already on the drawing table, where this upending tool can upend up to 1,400t.
