RUD UK, a subsidiary of the RUD Group, supplies a wide range of round steel link chain solutions and lifting technologies. Operating for over 150 years and earning more than 500 international patents, you can be confident in the Group’s reputation as a world leader in chain technology.
The RUD Group will be exhibiting at Offshore Europe on stand 1R31 where they will be showing their impressive ROV Hook, and a range of their DNV-GL approved lifting, lashing and chain sling components.
The ROV Hook was designed in 2017 to offer a product that met both the operational safety standards as well as the speed of use requirements the industry faced, thus reducing time penalties and increased costs. The ROV Hook was met with great enthusiasm and over the years has evolved.
The RUD ROV Hook is now available in 10t and 25t working load limit capacity hooks. They offer a safety factor of 4:1 and eliminate the risk of snagging and accidental shedding of loads. It is 100% crack tested and can withstand a dynamic loading of more than 20,000 load cycles according to European Standard EN 1677.
Having been developed for the market by the market, tried and tested over the years on many subsea projects, it clear to see the standard of safety it offers. The innovative twin trigger mechanism ensures that the hook can only open when both locking mechanisms are pressed simultaneously. Accidental opening of the hook and loss of
loads are therefore impossible.
The benefits of the RUD ROV Hooks are plentiful, the hook can be operated by all commonly used ROV manipulators, including the grabber and can be approached at inclined angles up to 30° perpendicular to the hook flat side.
The RUD Group will also be showing a range of their DNV-GL approved sling and lashing solutions which include the likes of their ever-popular VLBS, VLBG, VLBG-PLUS, VCGH, VIP Chain and many more. Economical, reliable, and safe: RUD is your DNV-GL certified partner for your marine and offshore applications.
