Designed for safer, faster and more straight forward offshore wind farm foundation installation, the remotely controlled wireless hook-up and release system engages directly with the foundation pile’s flange. This eliminates the need for additional lifting points or straps, helps avoid any requirements for personnel to go into hazardous zone locations and provides an ideal solution when longer piles hang over the edge of the vessel when stowed.
