DRIVE AND EXTRACT A 6.5 METER DIAMETER MONOPILE
In 2019, a CAPE VLT-320 Tandem was used to drive and extract a 6.5 meter diameter monopile of 60 meter length and weighing 330 ton on the Hollandse Kust Zuid Offshore Wind Farm off the Dutch coast.
As part of a new motion compensated gripper frame test with Dynamic Positioning installation the CAPE VLT was used as the pile had to be removed after installation and offered the opportunity to perform the test multiple times.
