WORLD’S LONGEST
CABLE LAID SLINGS

In May 2013, Hendrik Veder Group has produced two cable laid slings with a gigantic length of 280 meters each. To our knowledge, these are the world’s longest cable laid slings ever produced.

Terminated with two hand spliced soft eyes and weighing 63 MT each, the cable laid slings will be used by Saipem for subsea field installation in the Åsgard field in the Norwegian Sea.

Check out the time lapse movie that captures the entire production process of these slings at our production facility in Rotterdam in just 99 seconds - a process that in reality took more than a fortnight. And see the properties of the cable laid slings below.
