Motion Compensated Pile Gripper

Publieke samenvatting / Public summary

The next generation floating installation vessels will have a combination of exceptionally high transport and load capacity to efficiently install the XL-monopiles of future wind farms.

The goal of the Motion Compensated Pile Gripper project is to allow monopile installation with such a floating vessel. This will be achieved by compensating the disturbing vessel motions and herewith significantly increase the workability for floating installations.
