To meet customer demands within the subsea industry, a well- known spreader beam manufacturer has made changes to its standard range of Modular Spreader Beams so that they can now be used in water up to a depth of 150 metres, at no extra cost.
Alongside offering specialist technical expertise, Modulift manufactures lifting and spreader beams, spreader frames and other ‘below the hook’ lifting equipment, that is used globally across sectors including wind energy, nuclear, construction, and the oil and gas industries.
Due to the efficient shape and weights of their spreader beams, Modulift’s Engineering Department has been able to improve the integrity of their beams so that they can now withstand pressures in water up to a depth of 150 metres.
With this clever adaption to their product, which still has the modular design that Modulift spreader beams are known for, this new application means that products now in production can be used onshore, offshore and subsea, making the latest products multi-functional.
All new products will be issued with a Declaration of Conformity which confirms their subsea capability, so that customers know that they meet the standard required.
