Modulift Spreader Beams Optimized for Extreme Ocean Depths

As part of their innovative new product development strategy, and to meet customer demands within the subsea industry, global engineering company Modulift have made changes to their standard range of Modular Spreader Beams so that they can now be used in water up to a depth of 150 meters, at no extra cost.

In addition to offering specialist technical expertise, the U.K.-based company 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 have been able to improve the integrity of their beams so that they can now withstand pressures in water up to a depth of 150 meters.

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.

The main benefits are:

  • Multi-purpose application for use onshore, offshore and subsea, so no need for additional Spreader Beams being purchased, saving money
  • Available in a series of four: MOD 70, MOD 110, MOD 250
    and MOD 400
  • There are three applications per product: 50m, 100m and 150m

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.

Modulift’s technical director, Sue Spencer, said: “Our standard spreader beam is highly efficient owing to its shape. This makes it perfect for subsea applications, as circular shape minimizes the water drag and maximizes the buoyancy, which is an ideal requirement.”
