Flanged Pile Upending Tool

Flanged pile upending tools are used for the upending and lifting of large diameter piles with an integrated flange

Upend and lift your piles safely and efficiently and increase your installation window with our Flanged Pile Upending Tool (FPUT). Our Flanged Pile Upending Tool is specifically designed to upend and lift large diameter piles with an integrated flange. The tool installs monopiles safely while it is remotely operatable and no personnel is needed during the installation. In addition, no secondary steel is needed for the monopiles, which makes the FPUT an efficient tool. In addition, the tool has a great track record in the offshore wind, but can also be used in other markets.

At IQIP, we have two types of Flanged Pile Upending Tools. One tool for smaller piles, and one for the upending and lifting of the biggest monopiles in the world.


On a typical operation, we stab the Flanged Pile Upending Tool in to the monopile while it’s horizontally stored. After stabbing  the monopile, the latches connect underneath the pile top flange connection and create a fail-safe connection. This connection also makes sure that there will be no markings on your monopiles during this part of the installation sequence.

In addition, during the upending and lifting of the monopile, the FPUT will use the geometry of the pile for support. Our Advisory Services can support you during your project with calculations for the monopiles and/or flange connections.


The Flanged Pile Upending Tool can be used in combination with the Combi Lifting Spread. The Combi Lifting Spread is a spread that consist of multiple installation tools, that can be used for foundation installations. The main piece of the spread, the Lifting Connector, connects easily with the corresponding socket on top of the tool and lifts the tool without the need of riggers, shackles or slings. This increases the safety and efficiency on board. More information about the Combi Lifting Spread? Check the Combi Lifting Spread here.
