Internal Lifting Tool (ILT)

The Internal Lifting Tool (ILT) is a versatile pile and conductor handling tool.

ILTs can be easily inserted in a vertical or horizontal position and can be used to a depth of 3,000 m. 

Most of our ILTs are supplied in a dedicated DNV certified container, which doubles as an on-site workshop container. Spacers can be changed quickly, allowing the tool to be resized in a fast, simple and safe way - especially important for multi-sized piling projects.

The ILT self-locks once a lifting load is applied to ensure safe operation.

We have recently developed three new 30" - 60" ILTs which are available for rental and have two new 16" - 36" ILTs that will be joining our rental fleet in Q3 2018. Both tools follow the same design specification to enable rapid tooling change out offshore and simplistic operation.

Advantages of the LM Handling ILT:

  1. Fully designed in accordance with, and verified by, DNV
  2. It is safe to upend the pile with the umbilical disconnected
  3. A wide range of common pile sizes catered for
  4. Just one setting for each pile size covers a wide range of available wall thicknesses
  5. The ILT is simple and quick to configure between pile sizes
  6. The lifting arm removal is simple and quick to perform
  7. High quality Swagelok stainless steel fittings used
  8. Improved grease distribution and ease of application
  9. Built-in stainless steel accumulator
  10. Choice between WROV or umbilical feed is automatic, no diverter valve pre-set is required
