LDD Design, Engineer and Deliver

LDD provides design & engineering capability with proven fast track delivery of custom solutions to tight time frames, whilst ensuring the equipment performs right, first time.

Underpinned by LDD’s design, engineering and marine contracting expertise, we design and build solutions to suit our foundation installation services, or your individual project requirements.

A key strength is our ability to design integrated electrical systems, instrumentation and hydraulic control systems which offer sophisticated functions and safety features whilst remaining robust and reliable for operation in the marine environment.

Our most recent development is the design and commissioning of a seabed piling template for pre-installation of jacket foundation piles for a major European wind farm. As well as the structural design, LDD has designed, procured and commissioned the control systems for the manipulation of 2.7m diameter, 60m long piles to ensure verticality and positional control to very tight tolerances. LDD has also incorporated the survey systems for the positioning, monitoring and as-built measurement of the installed piles.

By designing and building custom equipment, we are not constrained by availability of existing equipment in the market and can focus on developing the right solution for your project needs. This gives us the opportunity to finesse equipment by incorporating lessons learned from previous experience, accommodating any changes in legislation and best practice. This ensures that equipment is optimised in terms of health & safety and operability.

Our Design & Engineering capability (which is available to suit your requirements) includes:

  • Piling Equipment
  • Pile Design
  • Subsea pile support templates and piling gates
  • Lifting & Handling tools
  • Temporary works
  • Pile Drivability Analysis
  • Mudmat design
  • Geotechnical and environmental design support

Whatever your design or project requirements, we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to get in touch with our team to have an informal discussion about a solution that suits you.
