Press Release: Applied Fiber Earns DNV GL Type Approval for Fiber Rope Terminations Offshore
Applied Fiber, a world leader in high performance fiber rope terminations and tension systems has received type approval for fiber rope terminations under DNVGL – ST – 0378 for offshore vessels and platforms certified under DNVGL. Applied Fiber offers a robust rope termination with 100% strength efficiency for lifting appliances and mooring applications. The terminations provide a simple method to integrate fiber rope with existing rigging connections.

MacGregor, a leading offshore crane manufacturer is utilizing the terminations on the new FibreTrac 1500 crane announced at ONS – Offshore Northern Seas Exhibition in Norway. The crane integrates a specialized rope handling system designed by Parkburn specifically for synthetic fiber rope. The system offers full payload to any depth and provides owners and operators a level of performance not seen with current cranes.

Fiber and rope terminations are being adopted across numerous industries and in many cases are subject to extreme fatigue situations such as surface mining drag lines in rope sizes up to 1500MT strength.
