Rapid Response Manufacture of Heavy Lift Slings

25 April 2017
 
Design and manufacture of heavy lift slings to meet tight project deadlines has allowed Lankhorst Euronete Brasil to deliver several HMPE sling sets with CGBL (Calculated Breaking Strength) of 384, 1350, 1800 and 3700 MT, and with different lengths, for a heavy lifting project, offshore Brazil.

These are bespoke slings designed and manufactured in about 30 days, demonstrating the agility of our production resources to meet specific customer requirements, and the need for special project delivery schedules,” says Rui Faria, Senior Vice President Global Oil & Gas Synthetics, Lankhorst Euronete Brasil.

The slings are to be used for the deployment and installation of subsea equipment at water depths greater than 2,000 meters, and will remain attached to the equipment for recovery in the future.

The slings have been designed and manufactured according to the customer’s and standard specifications including several specific requirements such as a filtering system to prevent particles entering the rope during contact with the seabed, restricted space for assembly, enhanced protection against abrasion, and an anti-rotation line and handle to allow manipulation by ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle).
