January 29 - Following the latest DNV standard that was released in October 2014, Modulift has revealed its latest product range; subsea modular spreader beams.
Modulift says it has taken the modular elements from its standard and heavy spreader beam ranges to produce a versatile and efficient range of products for deep water lifts.
Complying with DNV-OS-H206 - Loadout, Transport and Installation of Subsea Objects, the Modulift subsea spreader beams are designed to safely hold weights up 500 tonnes.
Unlike Modulift's standard spreader beams that are manufactured using circular hollow section, the subsea spreader beams have an open section design, which is suitable for water submersion as it eliminates risks associated with cavity or pressure issues, claims the company. They are finished with a three-coat paint system that is based on a two-pack epoxy paint combination suitable for the marine environment.
Modulift's says by using modular engineering, customers will be able to reconfigure and reuse the subsea spreader beams.
