CAPE Holland: Redefining the future of XXL monopile installation
Tuesday, February 13, 2024

See how the CAPE VLT-640 Triple was successfully load tested to complete the lifting appliance certification process under Lloyd’s Register Code for Lifting Appliances in a Marine Environment (CLAME). The CAPE VLT-640 Triple was subjected to a test load of 3,245 tons and certified (SWL) for lifting piles up to 2,400 tons.

The CAPE Vibro Lifting Technology will be used to upend and safely install monopiles for the Moray West offshore wind turbine and offshore substation platform foundations. The piles will subsequently be driven to final penetration with an impact hammer. The monopiles have a top diameter of 7.5 meter and bottom diameter of up to 10 meter, measure up to 93 meters in length and weigh up to nearly 2,000 tons.
