The LiftLOK-2500-QCT is a Quick Connection Lifting Tool (QCT) that provides an easy to use and safer alternative to traditional shackle methods.

The LiftLOK-2500-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-2500-QCT can then be remotely disconnected again. In case of issues with with vessel equipment, the tool can also be hydraulically disconnected via the ROV interface.

Latest Project Application

CSBC-DEME Hai Long Offshore Wind Farm

A client requested a custom designed LiftLOK, 2500 mT Quick Connection Lifting Tool (QCT) which could interface between a 2500 mT WLL shackle and a pre-piling template fitted with metrology and hydraulic systems.

The pre-piling template is be used to guide the installation of pin piles for jacket foundations using CAPE’s VLT-640 Single pile driver.

The LiftLOK was chosen by the client because of its safer rapid remote controlled operation that could save potentially hundreds of hours compared to a regular shackle.
