Conquest Offshore, together with deugro Denmark A/S, has developed a new installation system for monopiles and transition pieces, supported by the engineering knowledge and experience of Temporary Works Design (TWD) and Barge Master.
For this new floating installation concept the companies have combined their experience and in depth knowledge of floating installation, offshore skidding, upending, pile handling and motion compensated tools. A newly designed and time effective skidding system makes a full deck load on the 136 meter barge ('Conquest MB1') possible. The ability to upend monopiles (from deck and floating) and the use of a specially designed motion compensated pile gripper provide the means for floating installation. During hammering hydraulic cylinders actively compensate the motions of the barge to ensure the right inclination of the pile.
