BEXCO announces the launching of FLEXOR™, its new Heavy-Lift Round Sling with a Dyneema® core for offshore lifting, subsea installations, renewables projects and offshore decommissioning and salvage.
With its modern R&D equipment, BEXCO has been able to conceptualize, test and then manufacture its new FLEXOR™ SLING design for engineered lifts, and is capable of purpose-building these slings within short lead times to meet all complex loading and handling requirements for specific lifting projects.
BEXCO has already tested the new FLEXOR™ Sling at DNV Norway for lengths up to 15 meters and 2,500 mT breaking strength.
With the Round Sling being effectively break-tested in the R&D phase rather than proof-loaded, BEXCO’s FLEXOR™ Sling has a number of proven, unique advantages over traditional round slings. This includes a bespoke double-fold jacket for each eye, both of which have been ruggedly designed to retain their shape during precision lifts and which resist any natural flattening whilst operating in harsh offshore conditions, allowing the use of smaller hardware.
CCO Rudi Labeau commented :"With this new Round Sling, we are responding to the demands and requests of our most important offshore customers. With FLEXOR™, BEXCO completes its comprehensive range of sling solutions to the market. We look forward to showcasing it along with our other synthetic rope solutions at the Offshore Technology Conference 2017 this week in Houston."
