An undisclosed client has hired KENC Engineering, which specializes in bespoke offshore energy equipment, for hammering operations in the construction of two offshore wind farms in the United States. Specifically, KENC has been contracted to design and build a Hammer Quick Lifting Frame (HQLF).

KENC’s solution includes a Balltec quick connect receptacle, integrated with a 750 mTT piling hammer. It also includes installation aids to simplify online assembly. The aim is “to develop a fatigue friendly lifting frame that is also [easily] inspectable”.

KENC expects the tool to be deployed from Q3 this year (2023), following delivery in Q1.

Vincent Vinkoert, business development manager at KENC, said: “I’m very excited to kick of the new year with this beautiful project for our client. The engineering is already in full swing and we look forward to delivering a successful tool in the coming months.”
