The CVLT-640 Triple, a lifting appliance developed by Cape Vibro Lifting Technology (CVLT), has successfully completed the load testing process and received certification under the Lloyd’s Register Code for Lifting Appliances in a Marine Environment (CLAME).
During the testing phase, the product was subjected to a load of 3,245 tons. This load test is said to have established CVLT’s Safe Working Load (SWL) for lifting piles up to 2,400 tons.
CVLT will deploy the CVLT-640 Triple for the upending and installation of monopiles for the Moray West offshore wind turbine and offshore substation platform foundations. Following the initial installation, the piles will undergo their final penetration phase using an impact hammer.
