Safe subsea lifting [DSEI17D2]

13 September 2017

Underwater lifting operations, referred to as subsea, are both routine and potentially dangerous. Germany-based RUD Group (Stand S3-302) has been providing innovative rigging for more than 100 years.

The task of lowering equipment and tools to the seabed and then lifting them to the surface upon completion of the job, requires rigging equipment, such as slings, hooks and attachments in the form of shackles and eyebolts.

RUD is showing subsea lifting devices that have been designed to avoid the potentially lethal risks of snagging and unintentional release of rigging from hooks (shedding). One example of RUD’s safe subsea lifting equipment is the new Rov hook with a patented mechanism that prevents snagging and shedding.
