Monopile installation and extraction (Maasvlakte, The Netherlands)

30-11-2016

CAPE Holland successfully extracted a wind turbine foundation monopile at the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam last week. The 4m diameter pile needed only 12 minutes to be loosened and extracted completely. Thanks to the upend capability of the Vibro Lifting Tool (VLT), it was also possible to downend the pile, ready for transport. The VLT is a certified lifting tool and vibro hammer in one, making it a perfect tool to contribute to significant costs savings in the Offshore Wind Industry for both the installation as the decommissioning at the end of live of a wind farm.
