Heavy Lift Slings And Grommets Manufactured by KTL Offshore Get The Job Done In The North Sea Using One Of The Largest Cranes In The World!
September 01, 2016


The top decks of the Gina Krog platform were installed in late June in less than a week using the Saipem 7000 installation vessel. The complete weight of the platforms was around 20,000 tons. KTL Offshore supplied the heavy lift slings and grommets for the lifting of the living quarters, main support fame, process module and utility modules.



In July 2016 the topside platforms for the Ivar Aasen project were successfully installed by the Saipem 7000. Approximately 15,000 tons of platform were lifted using cable laid slings and grommets manufactured by KTL Offshore. First oil from this project is expected in December 2016

Both projects used the Saipem 7000 semi-submersible crane vessel - which uses twin 3,500t cranes - to perform the heavy lift. This vessel is currently listed as the world’s second largest crane vessel, after the DCV Thialf operated by Heerema. The cable laid slings and grommets were manufactured and tested at KTL Offshore’s Tanjong Langsat facility in Malaysia. All slings and grommets were individually tested to ensure the stringent length tolerances were achieved.
