TWD designed a piling and drilling template applicable to three different jack-up barges in order to install piles for the Hay Point jetty construction in Australia. Each jack-up barge was equipped with rails on which outriggers were installed. The outriggers were able to slide along the rails by means of large hydraulic cylinders. Each end of the outriggers was outfitted with a pile gripper, able to move independently with the use of hydraulics. This resulted in a two layer piling template capable of installing piles at various inclination angles. The templates can also be used to support drilling equipment when the two outriggers function as a movable support frame for the oscillator.
