Successful 880 tonne test
Using a Britlift modular spreader beam, water bags and 700t shackles, the 880 tonne proof load test was carried out by Water Weights. The Telford 34 combines advanced pipelay capability with accommodation for up to 335 people . With DP3, a large unobstructed main deck, a hydraulicâ€¯heave-compensatedâ€¯telescopicâ€¯gangway, S-lay pipelay equipment for 4″ to 48″ diameter pipe, a 55m stinger, and, of course, the 800mt crane, she can handle a wide range of projects.
Jim Jota, Marketing Manager Water Weights USA, said “Britlift beams are the lightest modular beams in the market. Being in the rental business, we ship our equipment all throughout our region. The ease of use, assembly, and lightweight construction is much in line with Water Weights’ ethos; safe, efficient, and cost effective in an environment where time is money. The engineering support we received especially during the design phases where we needed the system to be modular, and adaptive to different configurations for various phases of testing made it a simple decision to choose Britlift.”
