The LiftLOK-3000-QCT provides an easy to use and safer alternative to traditional shackle methods.

The LiftLOK-3000-QCT can be remotely guided into the receptacle using the nose-mounted camera and the connection status verified using the linear transducer monitoring system. This information is then transmitted, latency free, to the vessel control room.

Using the ‘ball & groove’ method the tool mechanically locks to the receptacle.

The LiftLOK-3000-QCT can then be remotely disconnected. In case of issues with with vessel equipment, the LiftLOK-3000-QCT benefits from a fully integrated redundancy operating system.

Latest Project Application

Boskalis Moray West XXL Monopile Installations

CAPE Holland have spent the last year developing, engineering and manufacturing the next level Vibro Lifting Tool, the CAPE VLT-640 Triple for Boskalis, for the installation of offshore wind XXL monopiles.

CAPE’s lifting tool required an easy to use, safe and quick lifting solution for the extremely high load. With high capacity LiftLOK tools used previously on both the Bokalift 1 and Bokalift 2, Boskalis again chose us to engineer a solution for Moray West.

The lifting tool was to be capable of handling near 3000 mT, meaning it would be one of the highest capacity quick connect tools ever made. The 3680 mT proof loaded LiftLOK-3000-QCT system was selected.

Because of its versatility, the LiftLOK-3000-QCT is used for multiple operations; during CAPE’s proof load testing, onboarding, handling and upending the monopiles, securing the hammer during operation, and system recovery.

The LiftLOK-3000-QCT  is DNV approved to DNV-ST-0378 and has a fatigue life of 10 years under operational conditions.
