Sif, specialist in offshore foundations, chose to use a modular spreaderbeam with a WLL of 400.000 kg, including rigging, by Hoist International. This spreader is used for testing the bolting of a monopile and transition piece. All the spreaders that Hoist International delivers are provided with tubes, end pieces and bowshackles. Sif delivers offshore foundations for wind turbines and oil & gas platforms. Due to the fact that these foundations need to withstand strong natural forces, testing is an essential part of the production. To be able to test the bolting of a monopile and transition piece, Sif asked hoist and lift specialist Hoist International to deliver a modular spreaderbeam with a WLL of 400.000 kg, including rigging.
