LIFTING EQUIPMENT, DECK MACHINERY & WINCHES


RUD VRBG LOAD RING ON PLATE FOR BOLTING CAN BE LOADED AT 90° TO THE VERTICAL WITH A FULL WORKING LOAD LIMIT:


RUD Chains offers over 600 different tested and certified lifting and lashing points which cover a working load capacity range of 0.6 to 250 tonne. RUD’s lifting equipment is used across a wide range of working environments from Heavy lifting, Engineering, Materials Handling, Offshore, Construction, Rail, MOD and many more.


The VRBG load ring on plate for bolting offers a range of advantages and lifting options for the user. Firstly it can be supplied with 4 bolts offering a working load capacity of 10-16 tonnes or it can be supplied with 6/8 bolts with an impressive working load capacity of 31.5-50 tonnes.


It can be loaded at 90° to the vertical with a full working load limit, the suspension ring pivots 180° and offers a safety factor of 4:1 in all load directions. The VRBG is operational from -20° to plus 350°.


RUD patented wear marking indicator helps ROPE AND SLING SUPPLIES LIFTING GEAR FOR MAJOR FALKLANDS PROJECT


Rope and Sling Specialists (RSS) has supplied lifting and rigging equipment for the Mare Harbour upgrade project, part of a massive modernisation of the military infrastructure on the falkland Islands, a British overseas territory off the coast of Argentina.


Mare Harbour is a small settlement on East falkland, on Choiseul Sound, primarily used as a port facility and depot for RAF Mount Pleasant, located about 15km north. An upgrade is underway to make the harbour suitable for larger vessels, namely the POINT Class ships, with roll-on roll-off capability of the Falkland Islands Resupply Ship (FIRS). There are approximately 10 FIRS sailings per year, which deliver military supplies including hardware, food and commercial freight to the Falkland Islands.


RSS has supplied wire rope slings, web slings, round slings, shackles, hydraulics, chain slings and wire rope to civil engineering and maritime service provider VolkerBrooks, part of VolkerStevin, which agreed the £19m upgrade—£180m will be invested in the Falklands over the next 10 years—with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO).

Alan Varney, Depot Manager at RSS headquarters in Bridgend, Wales, said: “The opportunity to supply such a landmark and important project represents a great start to 2017 and once again demonstrates our capability to manufacture and source lifting equipment for demanding applications to a short lead time.”


RSS received the order on 9 January and committed to delivery to Morecambe in Northwest England two weeks later. The shipment, which filled 15 pallets, included 35t and 25t capacity wire rope slings manufactured by RSS in addition to chain slings of various sizes that were also assembled at the South Wales facility.


Varney added: “Our 1,000t Sahm Splice hydraulic press enables us to manufacture slings up to 55t working load limit (Wll), which is a capability that is generating significant and ongoing interest from industry. We have adapted our manufacturing processes to enable us to meet this demand within the stringent time constraints often associated with orders for such equipment.”


VolkerBrooks (formerly Humby and Brooks), acquired by VolkerStevin in 1937, placed the


order with RSS, which already supplies, hires and inspects lifting equipment for the specialist service provider. VolkerBrooks is committed to maintaining the highest standards of workmanship supported by its suppliers, systems and facilities to provide an efficient and effective service. Rob Coupe, Managing Director at VolkerStevin, said: “As a specialist in marine construction works, we look forward to working on this design and build project for the roll-on roll-off facility upgrade. We’re pleased to be working as part of this investment to modernise military infrastructure on the Islands and look forward to starting.”

highlight when the lifting equipment is no longer fit for service and needs to be replaced. Therefore, offering an ultimate safety factor to the user.


The VRBG is easy to assemble and has 100% working load limit at 90° in the load ring plane. The minimum working load limit in all directions is clearly marked and the RUD bolts are available as spare parts.


The VRBG is typically used across heavy engineering, shipbuilding, turbine lifting, s teel structure assemblies and in lifting and final positioning of new machinery.


RUD provide standard and tailored solutions to meet even the most demanding environments. Top quality products combined with technological innovations and experience make RUD a top choice for all your lifting requirements
