Lifting tools

Handling delicate cargo and equipment sometimes requires more advanced rigging to perform a safe lift without damaging the item. We have an extensive track record in the design of a wide variety of lifting tools. You can acquire us for the design of a simple spreader beam or frame, up to advanced tools equipped with sensors and hydraulic components. A great example of a TWD lifting tool design is the Secondary Steel Cage (SSC) Lifting tool for GeoSea’s Kentish Flats extension. This tool enabled GeoSea to install SSC’s to within a millimeter of precision without any damage to Monopile or SSC.

In addition to the design, TWD can also arrange the fabrication and certification as well, so your lifting tool can be ready to use in a short amount of time. With a lifting tool by TWD you can be sure to have a safe and fit-for-purpose lifting operation.



The multipurpose lifting tool provides a light-weight solution for installation of monopiles and transition pieces without making any reconfigurations. Tailored to your vessel’s maximum crane capacity, it allows installation contractors to use the same familiar tool on different items and installation projects. With operational safety, robustness and ease of installation as main design objectives, the cooperation of Bosch Rexroth and Temporary Works Design realized the most flexible and best integrated internal flange lifting tool currently available in the market.

TWD developed a Jacket Lifting Tool that enables you to install the next generation wind turbine jackets. The Jacket Lifting Tool is light weight and currently available with a SWL up to 1500 tonne. The design of the tool can be scaled up and tailored to your maximum crane capacity in case an increased SWL is required. Being fully remote controlled, it ensures a safe and easy installation, without the need of crew accessing the top of the jacket. The Jacket Lifting Tool is designed with operational safety, speed and redundancy as main objectives. TWD has a large track record in the design of offshore lifting tools and we incorporated this experience in the design of the light-weight Jacket Lifting Tool.
