Suretank cargo basket for Odfjell

Suretank has supplied a new design of DNV 2.7-1 cargo basket for Netherlands based Odfjell Well Services.

The safety enhanced cargo baskets, engineered at Suretank Netherlands, have had the standard top beam removed and a swinging end door installed. These clever design features make it very easy for operators to gain entry to the basket and have access to the various tools. The process of loading and unloading the basket is also simplified and made safer.

Mr. Leon Sol, Technical Sales Engineer at Odfjell Well Services, explained: “Normally offshore cargo baskets do not have a swinging end door. This results in additional risks for personnel with the potential to cause injuries by climbing in and out of the baskets. The easy entrance by means of the protected swinging end door reduces risks and prevents injuries.”

Bart Schenk, General Manager at Suretank Netherlands, explained: "We worked very closely with Odfjell to upgrade the standard basket design and a 3D model was produced in the pre-engineering phase outlining their specific health and safety requirements and features.

"These new offshore cargo baskets offer real added value in terms of safety awareness and easy access."
