FibreMax has successfully performed another break load test on an aramid cable as part of a Lloyds certification project for one of its customers. The test was performed at Mennens in Dongen on their 13.500kN test bench and was witnessed by the customer and a surveyor of Lloyds Register. The required break strength of the cable was 6560kN. After pre-loading of the cable in a controlled sequence the cable was pulled to break at 6972kN (701mT), so well over the required breaking strength.
All cables have to meet the requirements as prescribed by Lloyds in the Code for Lifting Appliances in a Marine Environment (CLAME) 2013. The cables will be used as suspension stays for a fly-jib on the cranes on an offshore heavy-lift vessel.
Final production of the cables for this project has already started and delivery to the customer will be in February 2014. As soon as the cables have been produced Lloyds Register will issue a certification approval on these cables.
