VB 10,000 Platform Lifts with Cradles

Using custom engineered rigging, Versabar's VB 10,000 retrieved two heavily damaged platforms from the Gulf of Mexico. Due to the extremely fragile nature of the structures, a cradle designed and fabricated by Versabar was used to assist in the lifts. The VB 10,000 lifted each platformontothe cradle, which had previously been lowered to the floor of the Gulf. The VB 10,000 then hooked up to cradle and brought it to the surface carrying each platform. At the surface, the cradle was lowered onto a barge for transport. The total lift weights including the cradle and rigging were 2,200 and 2,550-tons.
