These slings were selected over traditional steel slings due to their lighter weight which effectively increased the lifting capacity of the crane; as well as due to the difficult nature of the lifting job which involved placing two topside modules side by side on the jacket. This ground breaking project utilized what we believe to be the largest synthetic slings ever manufactured and used for a topside lift to date. The two modules weighed approximately 2, metric tons each and were transported from the fabrication yard in Korea to site in Myanmar with the slings installed. The slings were manufactured as matched sets to 0. Individual proof load testing was conducted using our KimTest test bed, one of the largest and longest in the industry.

These slings were selected over traditional steel slings due to their lighter weight which effectively increased the lifting capacity of the crane; as well as due to the difficult nature of the lifting job which involved placing two topside modules side by side on the jacket. This ground breaking project utilized what we believe to be the largest synthetic slings ever manufactured and used for a topside lift to date.
The two modules weighed approximately 2, metric tons each and were transported from the fabrication yard in Korea to site in Myanmar with the slings installed. The slings were manufactured as matched sets to 0. Individual proof load testing was conducted using our KimTest test bed, one of the largest and longest in the industry. The lifting and mating of both modules was completed successfully and without major incident.
Witnessed and certified by ABS. KTL Offshore was awarded the contract to manufacture and supply the steel cable laid grommets and KimSwage steel slings for the lifting of the Thien Ung top deck modules.
The top decks are part of a 3,t platform which includes a four legged jacket. The project aims at exploiting the natural gas deposits in this field. The topside weighed a massive 3, tons and is part of a programme covering the manufacturing and installation of four oil producing platforms and associated pipelines and power cables. ITEMS mm x The slings will be used for this EPIC project including the pre-commissioning of production flowline systems, a MEG injection system, start-up condensate transfer and fuel gas transfer flowline systems, control systems as well as other associated SURF elements in water depths up to meters.
The slings were also subject to a floatation test to prove that they float in water. This EPIC project is expected to be completed in It will be executed in 2 phases where a total of 8 wellhead platforms will be installed and a network of KTL Offshore supplied KimLockTM cable laid slings with resin terminated spliced eyes, which provided the heavy lift contractor with a lighter rigging solution as well as a faster, easier load out and installation due to the compact terminations.
The project location was in Qatar. The MSF module has an estimated weight of around 10, metric tons and in total the topside weight is approximately 17, metric tons. The Gina Krog field is located around kilometers southwest of Stavanger, Norway. The development has an estimated million barrels of oil and gas. The entire topside will be situated in a water depth of meters. KTL Offshore was awarded the contract to manufacture and supply the steel cable laid slings for the lifting of the topside modules for the Ivar Aasen project.
The topside module weighed around 13, metric tons in total. The two main cable laid slings were ultra long at meters and meters length straight pull.
The slings were manufactured at our Malaysian facility and tested on our unique KimTest test bed. This is one of the largest and longest in the rigging industry, providing KTL with the ability to proof load slings up to meters in length. The maximum proof load capacity of this test bed is 3, metric tons.
This first phase development has an estimated production of 16, boe barrels of oil equivalent per day, increasing to 23, boe per day in the second phase. KTL Offshore was contracted to supply one of the highest capacity synthetic slings ever manufactured to date for the lifting of certain equipment used to construct the massive Prelude FLNG vessel.
The design and development of these synthetic slings represented a breakthrough in technology for synthetic slings, due to the required strength and length of the slings.
The load bearing structure of the slings was constructed using the most advanced HMPE yarn and spun into the optimum design at our Singapore facility. Each sling was supplied with Cordura outer body protection and a higher strength cover protection at each eye.
The Prelude FLNG is the world's first floating liquefied natural gas platform as well as the largest offshore facility ever constructed.
At full load, it will displace more than , tonnes, more than five times the displacement of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. The hull was launched in December E-mail: ktlads ktlsg. Year 0.

Guidance on the manufacture and safe use of cable-laid slings and grommets
The International Marine Contractors Association IMC A is the international trade association representing offshore, marine and underwater engineering companies. IMCA promotes improvements in quality, health, safety, environmental and technical standards through the publication of information notes, codes of practice and by other appropriate means. Members are self-regulating through the adoption of IMCA guidelines as appropriate. They commit to act as responsible members by following relevant guidelines and being willing to be audited against compliance with them by their clients. HSE has advised that, although it no longer issues this type of guidance, it would not be adverse to operational practices which followed the guidelines formerly available in PM The guidance was originally prepared by a working group of experts in and was intended to be mainly of assistance to those concerned with the use of cable laid slings and grommets in very heavy lifting operations. Such operations often use cable laid slings and grommets of mm diameter and over , as developed for use in the offshore oil industry.
IMCA publishes guidance on the manufacture and safe use of cable-laid slings and grommets
So what are the consequences for the leaders of the organisations in which our quality and environmental professionals work today? Leaders face the constant expectation that they will deliver solutions to meet the needs of this ever changing market place in which we are now all operating. Leaders must continually challenge conventional thinking and drive their teams to explore and deliver at a level not previously experienced and within financial constraints that make the task seem insurmountable. Business leaders, and in particular quality and environmental professionals, must learn how to master fiscal challenges and make decisions in extremely uncertain times. Managing risk,. The concept of risk-based thinking has been implicit in previous editions of this International Standard including, for example, carrying out preventive action to eliminate potential nonconformities, analysing any nonconformities that do occur, and taking action to prevent recurrence that is appropriate for the effects of the nonconformity. To conform to the requirements of this International Standard, an organization needs to plan and implement actions to address risks and opportunities.
