Modulift Spreader Beam

Modulift has recently completed testing for its largest standard spreader beam, the MOD 1100 / 2000t, to be used for offshore monopile installations

Modulift, the market-leading manufacturer of modular spreader beams, has recently finished testing of another impressive MOD 1100 / 2000t modular spreader beam. Currently the largest supplied standard beam in the Modulift range, with a lifting capacity of 2000 tonnes, the MOD 1100 has been ordered by a Belgian client for Offshore Monopile installations.

The 30-metre-long beam comes complete with DNV GL type approval as standard. Fitted with optional extras including upper shackle supports to protect the synthetic top slings when resting and two 45t tugger points on each end. The Pewag PLDW 45t tugger points were supplied by Prolift UK.

The test was carried out in Modulift’s recently upgraded 2200t x 30 metre compression test rig and was third party witnessed by the client and DNV GL. The two drop links were tested in Modulift’s newly built 1500t tensile test rig.

The whole operation was successfully executed over three days with individual tests carried out at 19 metre, 20 metre and 30 metre spans.
