New offshore container stacking system

New offshore container stacking system

Suretank has developed a new stacking design which is being rolled out following several incidents in the field. Safety in the offshore oil and gas sector is our principal driving force at Suretank and so we have made modifications to the design of the padeye to avoid the potential for snagging.

As with all of our products, the designs have been modified and agreed with DNV and comply to the latest DNV 2.7-1, (2013) code.

The ability to stack offshore tanks and containers is crucial to our customers given the space constraints and so it is important to point out that the modifications we have made will not inhibit this, the key, as with all of our work is that it makes the practice safer. The new padeye designs will be present on all new Suretank products including cryogenics tanks, helifuel tanks and the full range of offshore containers.



Take the LEAD
