Seatools announces successful delivery and operation of its pre-piling template equipment to CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE) for the Hai Long Offshore Wind Farm project.

This milestone reinforces Seatools’ standing as the undisputed market leader in advanced subsea metrology and control solutions, drawing on its vast experience from over twelve similar pre-piling template projects.

Seatools, in close collaboration with CDWE, was responsible for the comprehensive design of the pile template’s metrology and control system, encompassing all mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and software components. The advanced metrology system ensures that pile installation is achieved with exceptional accuracy, meeting stringent tolerance requirements. The project uses both a vibratory hammer and an impact hammer for pile installation.  

This mixed-method approach led Seatools to undertake a detailed evaluation, ensuring the equipment’s structural integrity and operational reliability under the varied loads imposed by both the vibratory and impact methods. This proactive approach significantly reduced the need for on-site modifications and calibration, streamlined the commissioning process, and improved the certainty of adhering to the offshore wind farm’s construction schedule.

Jan Frumau, Managing Director at Seatools, remarked: “I am very pleased to have successfully delivered this pre-piling template equipment to CDWE for the Hai Long Offshore Wind Farm. The excellent cooperation we experienced with CDWE was instrumental in achieving such a smooth execution. We remain dedicated to equipping them with reliable subsea technology to ensure productive, accurate, and uninterrupted offshore installation operations. By leveraging our advanced simulation techniques and robust industrial-grade subsea hardware, we empower our clients to perform effective and precise pre-piling operations.”
