Lafayette, LA (PRWEB) July 07, 2014
Gauthiers’, a leading supplier of offshore containers, baskets and support equipment, announces the expansion of their line of offshore lifting frames. The company has standard sizes and can offer customized frames that meet client requirements as well as industry standards, including internationally recognized DNV 2.7-1 standards for Certification for Offshore Containers June 2013, EN 12079, IMO MSC/CIR 860, and Appendix G: SEPCo Lifted Equipment Certification.
Certified offshore lifting frames are becoming more popular with oilfield service companies in the Gulf of Mexico and internationally, and are most commonly used for transporting slick line skids, coil tubing packages, pumps, compressors and wireline equipment. They are also used to handle logistics for specialty tools, temporary buildings and machinery without pad eyes. By mounting the equipment to these frames, users can ensure the safe transfer of their products offshore.
Gauthiers’ developed its frames in consultation with industry clients, who use them to safely transport items like mud pumps, umbilical cords, oversized spools, wireline and generators.
“These units are perfect for sending common supplies offshore” notes Gauthiers’ Vice President of Business Development Garett Gauthier. “And because our lifting frames are DNV 2.7-1 certified, our customers know they are using the safest possible method of transporting special or bulky cargo.”
Gauthiers’ certified lifting frames are available for purchase in both their Lafayette and Houma locations to serve customers from Houston to Port Fourchon.
