Pin Pile Internal Lifting Tool

Houlder’s Pin Pile Internal Lifting Tool aids the safe installation of sub-sea pin piles using the vessel’s main crane. Used from a fixed jack up or floating vessel to install pin piles into a pre-deployed pin pile template.

The internal lifting tool increases safety during installation by reducing manual intervention. It’s weight has also been minimised in order to maximise the operational flexibility of the system.
