Oversized Offshore Basket

Modex Adds Oversized Offshore Basket for Safer Heavy Lifting

 

(Lafayette, La.) — In response to the need for safer lifting of heavy equipment in the offshore environment, Modex has introduced a new Oversized Offshore Basket, the model B2702. The new model is 12’ wide by 27’ in length with a removable door for side loading.  The company is a supplier of units used for dynamic lifts of critical equipment like BOP stacks, top drives, large spools and oversized air conditioner units for offshore rigs.

 

One of the key advantages of the Oversized Offshore Basket is its ability to be pre-rigged for a single-point lift, thus reducing the number of accidents experienced by riggers on offshore or platform supply vessels. Rather than using multiple rigging slings and straps or building a custom frame for each lift, the Offshore Transporter is certified for use with any equipment up to 73,000lbs. MGW.

 

In order to ensure that this new product would meet or exceed all industry safety standards, Modex required extensive proof load testing and magnetic particle inspection. All testing was completed in accordance with the industry’s stringent heavy-lift standard, “DNVGL-ST-E273-Standard for Certification of Offshore Portable Units-April 2016.”

 

“We knew that our customers had limited options for safely sending out the heaviest equipment,” said Garett Gauthier, America’s Region Director. “We were determined to provide a safer and more efficient way for them to execute heavy lifts in the offshore environment.”

 

The Offshore Transporter is available for rental from Modex’s Louisiana locations of Houma, Lafayette, and Port Fourchon.
