Pile guiding tool for offshore wind monopile (4600 – 6000)

Price € To be discussed

The PGT is a mechanical/hydraulic tool for

installing monopile foundations from an

installation vessel (e.g. jack-up). After upending

the pile can be positioned between the grippers

of the unit while the pile toe is resting on the

seabed. The PGT holds the pile into position

and can also adjust its verticality in a given

envelope by applying a horizontal force to it.

Two winches can be used to correct the rotation

of the pile prior to touchdown. During pile

driving operations the PGT can be engaged and

is capable of taking horizontal forces introduced

by the hammer.

The unit can be folded up during transit so that the grippers are not an obstruction to other

vessels or harbor infrastructure (e.g. quay walls, locks etc.).

Our vision is to be on- and offshore equipments’ most customer and project centric company; to build a platform where organisations in the marine industry can come to find and discover any equipment they may need to successfully run, complete and expand their maritime operations and projects.
Our names was inspired by the Mantis shrimp, a small shrimp with extraordinary unmatchable powers. For instance, the eyes of the Mantis shrimp are among the most advanced eyes in the animal kingdom. With lots of small eye parts moving in different directions. Where humans have binocular vision, each one of the Mantis shrimp’s eye creates three separate images, resulting into a trinocular eyeball. The Mantis shrimp has two of these eyeballs, meaning it’s senocular. Human eyes can detect three colour wavelengths, the Mantis shrimp can detect twelve, nine more than the human eyes.
We believe in unburdening and relieving our customers from any equipment distress by offering excellent, innovative, straightforward, flexible and customer-tailored maritime equipment solutions. Inspired by the extraordinary vision capabilities of the Mantis shrimp, we intend to serve our customers by exploring the globe and conducting worldwide searches to track beneficial opportunities that serve any of our customers’ equipment needs.
