Up-Ending Tool for tall Tubular Steel Sections with integrated Transport Frame

To end up tall, heavy tubular steel sections like used when building monopile foundations or tower sections for offshore wind turbines with a weight higher than the workshops gantry crane hook load capacity, we developed a concept for a special up ending tool. Equipped with a hydraulic device the tool is able to relief the workshop gantry crane by taking over amount of the complete load while the tubular steel will be up ended in a controlled and safe way. With an integrated transport frame the up ended tubular steel section can easily be picked up by a SPMT and carried upright forward to be processed.


Our Scope of Work

  • Concept development
  • Basic design for transport frame and up ending tool
  • Calculation of the load between gantry crane and tool
