250te ATEX Load Shackles for SPM Mooring Hawser Line Monitoring

24th Aug 2017

Recently despatched from our factory were two ATEX load shackles, each rated to 250 tonnes, to be used for mooring hawser tension monitoring on a CALM buoy system. Because of the environment they will be used in (offshore loading/offloading of oil tankers) the load shackles had to be Ex’d certified for use in a Zone 2 hazardous area. GN Rope H11 ‘D’ shackles were specified by the customer and ABS witnessing of proof loading and calibration was also required. Each load shackle was supplied with 60m of steel armoured PUR cable and a junction box to provide RS232 output.
