The LiftLOK-500-ILT provides an easy to use and safer alternative to traditional shackle connections.

It’s reconfigurable design allows on-deck adjustment between lifts, currently with a range of between 36″ and 69″ (914 mm and 1753 mm).

Using the ‘ball and taper’ method, the tool mechanically locks into place with the load spread internally across the receptacle structure.

The LiftLOK-500-ILT can then recover the structure and remotely disconnect on deck. 

In case of issues with vessel equipment, the LiftLOK-500-ILT benefits from a fully integrated redundant operating system. This can be both ROV hydraulically and in-air mechanically controlled.

Latest Project Application

Sapura Energy Wellhead Platform Jacket Removal

Sapura Energy (Thailand), on behalf of Chevron, required a set of five tools engineered to act as the main connection point in the lifting of 60 decommissioned jackets on the Wellhead platform removal campaign in the Gulf of Thailand.

The core LiftLOK design allowed the LiftLOK-500-ILT to be quickly designed, manufactured, and tested to incorporate the multiple size configuration adaptions required.

Highly corroded jacket leg interfaces, and jacket leg batter angles of up to 10 degrees, provided further engineering challenges.

The tool operates in uniquely tough conditions, safely lifting structures in a highly corrosive environment with very little downtime for configuration changes.
