WATCH: Heerema install huge wind turbine monopile

Heerema Marine Contractors announced yesterday that it had begun installation on the monopile for Delft Offshore Turbine (DOT).

The monopile was installed off Holland’s coast at the Eneco Amalia windpark.

Heerema said: “The monopile was vibrated into the soil with a Vibro Lifting Tool which is a hybrid of a vibro hammer and lifting tool.

“Because of this no other tools were needed for picking up, upending and driving the pile to final penetration.”
