Goal: Detail engineering of a modular TIS (piling template). The piling template is used for pre-installing foundation piles for offshore wind turbines. After foundation pile installation a jacket is lowered over the foundation piles. On top of the jacket the actual wind turbine is mounted.
Result: Mechanical design, calculations and fabrication drawings for the manufacturing of a modular TIS. The TIS consists of a central frame and three or four sleeves through which the foundation piles are installed. The TIS is provided with a leveling system that keeps the TIS horizontal during pile installation. The sleeves are provided with retractable spacers that give operational advantage to the TIS compared to other piling templates.
