Doedijns has recently supplied the fourth complete hydraulic system for a pile gripper frame to Bilfinger Marine & Offshore Systems.
The system has been installed and commissioned and is currently being used to install a total of 72 Wind Turbine foundations for the Sandbank Offshore Wind Farm in the German North Sea. This makes the total amount of installed foundations with the help of a Doedijns system close to 400 foundations.
The scope of supply for Doedijns consisted of a containerized hydraulic power unit, control manifolds, complete e-control incl. a remote control and touchscreen, piping and tubing, sensors, flushing of the system, cylinders (up to 450 mm bore), hydro motors with planetary gearboxes, 2 x 20t winches and the complete commissioning and installation of the system.
