Custom Test Bed

Brimmond Group has an onsite custom test bed specially designed for testing the diverse and ever-increasing range of marine crane and associated equipment and welcomes client participation in the testing process, either personally, or via a nominated third party, to witness equipment being tested using industry recognised standards. Our experienced engineers can also test and fault find client existing equipment, providing a detailed report and recommendations.

  • Crane load testing – various knuckle boom crane static and dynamic load tests, preformed to client or Brimmond Group specified standards, such as DNV 2.22.
  • Winch load testing – in accordance with client or Brimmond Group specified standards.
  • Fluid cleanliness testing - We have particle analysers, chemical analysis kits and inline contamination monitors and we can carry out this testing at our facility. We also have the capability to clean the system fluid and provide a fluid cleanliness report once complete.
  • ROV launch and recovery systems – A-frame load testing, ROV umbilical winch line pull testing

Offshore Inspection/Load Test

Brimmond Group can provide onsite/offshore engineers for six monthly, annual and 5-yearly crane service, inspection/load testing. Our trained inspection engineers collect all relevant certification/maintenance information on the equipment to review. A detailed check-list is used by our engineers to thoroughly inspect all aspects of the equipment. The Crane and HPU electrical/hydraulic system is fully investigated and tested to ensure all appropriately set-up with any required remedial repairs carried out at time of inspection. Once complete a final load test can be performed using calibrated equipment. We can provide all the necessary calibrated instruments, including test weights and water bags.
