Heavy Lifting Tools
Balltec LiftLOK™ tools provide a simple, robust, high capacity method for connecting and disconnecting heavy loads to and from lifting devices. As a purely mechanical gripping device, requiring minimum ROV intervention, LiftLOK™ products are ideally suited for the deployment and retrieval of equipment to and from the ocean floor.
The lighter, more compact LiftLOK™ tool can be engineered to any load capacity, with bespoke tools designed for any unique application.
Amongst other applications the LiftLOK™ has been used for:
- Suction Pile Deployment
- Mud Mat Deployment & retrieval
- Subsea Decommissioning
- DTM Buoy Handling
- Stev-tensioning Systems
- Conductor Installations
- Mooring Systems
With its failsafe design, the LiftLOK™ tool can only be released under zero-load condition, ensuring no risk of accidental damage. Among other benefits the LiftLOK™ offers:
- Lighter and more compact design than all comparable products, without compromising the robustness or strength
- Lower parts count offers increased reliability
- Various ROV interfaces to suit mechanical, hydraulic or remote release
All LiftLOK™ tools are designed, manufactured and tested in accordance with DNV Standard for Certification No. 2.22 Lifting Appliances
