Okeanus Delivers High-Capacity Portable A-Frame

Okeanus continues to expand the performance specifications of their products

Okeanus Science & Technology, LLC (Okeanus), an established marine equipment and engineering service provider, today announced they have recently designed and built a unique high-capacity portable A-Frame. This A-Frame system has successfully completed its factory acceptance tests and has been shipped to the customer, CSA Ocean Sciences (CSA).

“We enjoy a long-standing, healthy relationship with CSA and we are thrilled to provide them with such an important operational asset,” said Don Brockett, COO of Okeanus. Generally, this type of deployment would have required a vessel with a permanently fixed A-Frame. “Keeping mobilization cost, shipping cost and schedules to a minimum are critical to our operations,” stated Kevin Peterson, CEO of CSA, “Working closely with Okeanus engineers, our team was able to develop a high-capacity A-Frame that can be quickly and safely mobilized on a vessel of opportunity without sacrificing performance and reliability.”

This A-Frame system was designed to be broken down for shipping, and then easily reassembled for mobilization on a wide variety of marine assets. The system comes with a set of bolt-down plates to secure it to sacrificial base plates, bolt-together sections, quick disconnects all around, and a stand-alone Hydraulic Power Units (HPU) with remote control. This A-Frame has a safe working load rating of 20,000lbs luffing and 30,000lbs static SWL.

Okeanus continues to expand its capabilities and increase the performance specifications of our products while maintaining true to our mission of making our customer’s work easier, safer, and more productive. To learn more, visit www.okeanus.com.
