BOP Lifting Tool

The customer purchased a series of 4 new ultra-deepwater drillships but the drilling package supplier had overlooked the need for a handling tool to lift the Lower BOP on its own.  They then quoted a delivery approaching 18 months.  Hampco developed the lifting cap concept, completed detail design and supplied the first unit in 4 months including load testing, all with ABS CDS Certification.   Due to the demanding delivery deadline, the unit was uniquely manufactured from layers of plate rather than forging or casting.
