2014 - present time
Major milestone manufacturing and succesful application of the Vibro Lifting Tool
In 2015, the first three Vibro Lifting Tools of 320 kgm are manufactured. A major milestone during this year for CAPE Holland was the first application of the single upending configuration of the CV-320 VLT-U. In just one 12 hour shift, 4 piles were driven in up to 90m water depth for the pre-piling project for the Culzean Wellhead Platform jacket which will be installed in 2016.
Expanding Vibro Lifting Tool product range
After the encouraging feedback of the Vibro Lifting Tool concept, CAPE Holland expanded her rental fleet with the development of a 80 kgm Vibro Lifting Tool. This is a smaller version to fulfil the market demand for a stabbing toool to be able to upend, handle and (part) install anchor piles, pin piles, jetty piles etc. The first two CV-80 VLT-U's are manufactured and will be deployed in early 2016 for an oil and gas project.
Expanded rental fleet
CAPE Holland expaned her impact hammer rental fleet which now contains the following hammers: IHC S-90, S-150, S-200 and S-280, with a selection of sleeves in the sizes 30", 35", 48", 64", and 120".
The CAPE Vibro System™
In 2014 our engineering department was developing a system for reducing the cost of installation and noise emissions. This development have resulted in the CAPE Vibro System™, a Lloyd's Register certified lifting appliance which can be configured with an upending option.
In October 2014, CAPE Holland has become part of the FoundOcean Group of companies.
Breakthrough offshore succes
With a large fleet of hydraulic impact and vibro hammers for sale and rent for the on- and offshore industry worldwide, CAPE Holland deepened their involvement in the offshore market. The breaktrough succes offshore was the development of a multiple linked vibro-hammer for the Riffgat Offshore Wind Farm project in 2012, driving 30 monopiles of 750 tonnes, fast and silently into the German North Sea floor.
