CAPE Holland will deploy its innovative Vibro Lifting Technology at the 882 MW Moray West offshore wind farm project, located in the North Sea, off the coast of Scotland.

The CAPE Vibro Lifting Technology combines certified upending, lifting and vibro driving to optimize the installation of foundation piles for offshore wind turbines. This allows for the monopile to be lifted and installed vertically, without the need for additional equipment to support the pile, reducing the risk of damage to the monopile.

“We are thrilled to be working on such an important project with our Vibro Lifting Technology,” said Dick van Wijngaarden, Business Development Manager of CAPE Holland. “Our technology has been specifically designed to optimise the installation process for offshore wind monopile foundations, and we are confident that it will provide significant benefits to the Moray West project.”

The CAPE Vibro Lifting Technology to install up to 62 monopiles to stable depth, in water depths ranging from 22 to 57 meters. This quiet installation technology is mainly used on this project to mitigate the risk of pile run which is an ever increasing risk with the increase in size of the monopiles.

The technology has been successfully used on a number of offshore wind projects, including the Formosa OWF in Taiwan and the Kaskasi OWF in Germany.

“We are excited to be partnering with CAPE Holland for the Moray West project,” said Peter Geddes, EPC Director at Ocean Winds. “Their technology offers an innovative solution to the risk of pile run and will simplify the installation process as an added bonus.”

The windfarm is being built by Ocean Winds, a 50:50 joint venture between EDP Renewables and Engie. It will provide enough electricity to power over 1.3 million homes and is set to start generating in 2024.
