Lifting and Upending Tools
TMS designed and supplied several lifting tools which are suitable for lifting transition pieces, mono piles or jackets. The tools can be supplied for various pile diameters and various maximum hoisting loads. An option is to control these tools remotely so that people are not on site in case of risky situations.
Besides the pile plug with upending features, TMS also designed upending tools for both foundation components with and without flange.
TMS made serveral designs for the upending of mono piles. TMS also made a mono pile plug which besides creating an air and water tight seal, also can be used for the upending of a mono pile. The plug graps the flange of the mono pile. The plugs are executed with a trunnionpipe for lifting. The plug can lift piles up to a weight of 675 ton.
