Oil & Gas Proof Load Testing Services & Equipment
In the oil & gas sector, Hydro-Wates offers high capacity water bags and wireless load cells to enable proof load testing of offshore cranes, winches, mooring systems, lifeboat davits, gangways, stairways, equipment structures, pad-eyes, overhead cranes, traveling blocks, drilling derricks, and other load-carrying structures. Our proof load testing water bags are available for rental in capacities of 2, 5, 12, 20 and 35 metric tons. All of our water bags are proof load tested and carry extensive certification documentation. We also offer rental load cells with capacities up to 250 metric tons.
For the offshore industry, our proof load water test bags have the advantage of being light and compact for transportation, weighing less than 1% of their filled capacity. For example, a 35 Te water bag has a packed shipping weight of just 618 lbs. Hydro-Wates transports its offshore equipment packages in fully enclosed, load certified aluminum containers, complete with load certified slings. If you choose to rent our equipment and perform the work with your own staff, Hydro-Wates will deliver not just the water bags but all of the additional equipment you’ll need to execute the job.
