Wind Energy – HQLF
KENC Engineering from the Netherlands has received a contract from an undisclosed party to design and build a Hammer Quick Lifting Frame.
For hammering operations during the construction of two US offshore wind farms, KENC has the assignment to design and build a Hammer Quick Lifting Frame (HQLF).
The HQLF integrates a Balltec quick-connect receptacle and a 750mT piling hammer. The scope includes installation aids for easy onsite assembly. The challenge here is to deliver a fatigue-friendly lifting frame that is also easy inspectable.
KENC’s experience with previous and similar lifting frames is the reason the company is awarded this scope.
The tool will be delivered in Q1 of 2023 and deployed in the summer of 2023.
