Today’s deepwater operations are pushing traditional installation ropes beyond their limits. At depths of 2,000 meters and more, operators need their ropes to be strong, light and easy to handle.
Using traditional steel-wire ropes limits deepwater operations, as their self-weight halves a crane’s capacity at 3,000 meters. Ropes with Dyneema® are as strong as steel, but so light they float, so a crane’s capacity is maximised, even at extreme depths.
Capitalizing on its full lifting capacity, more efficient use of cranes and vessels
Dyneema® offers the same strength as steel wire but is 80% lighter
It reduces the number of rope changes, thus improves crane availability
Take a look at our case studies to see how lifting slings made with Dyneema® proved to be very safe, reliable, and durable in the most demanding lifting operations.
“We strongly believe in the future of cranes with fiber rope included – not just because of a CAPEX and OPEX evaluation, but also to further shift the limit of what can be deployed in subsea applications.”
“We are so confident in the technology and keen to demonstrate the crane’s capabilities, that last year we entered into a programme to build, certify and validate it. I believe that it will be one of the world’s most advanced fibre-rope knuckle-boom cranes that the market has seen.”
Only deepwater installation ropes made with Dyneema® bear the Dyneema® diamond. Find your deepwater installation ropes with Dyneema®, only manufactured by our official partners.
