“IRM” Pile Grippers are a unique engineering invention for the protection of offshore Jackets after driving pile through them, leveling of Jackets, and to prevent any movement during grouting. At mid-sea, waves and storm forces cause relative movements of Jacket with piles. This may damage the pile foundation severely. Hence to restrict such relative or rotational movement of Jacket, Pile Grippers fitted on jackets are actuated hydraulically /pneumatically to hold Pile firmly and prevent any relative movement. Pile Grippers are also used to level jackets before grouting and are very essential to stop the slightest displacement of the jacket during the setting time of grout materials. All our Pile Grippers are tested for actual Load. “IRM” Pile Grippers are available for 42” to 96” pile size. We also supply Hydraulic Powerpack units with all controls for the actuation of Grippers.
- Storm Security – The devices can be used to secure a jacket temporarily if weather forces the derrick barge off-location
- High strength
- Provide temporary connection
- Faster structure leveling
- Low maintenance
