As demand increases for lifting equipment with Det Norske Veritas (DNV) approval, Modulift has completed its second bespoke spreader system with full certification.

Both spreader systems are for the Pluto LNG Project in Western Australia. The AU$12 billion (US$ 10 billion) venture is set to become the fastest developed LNG project from discovery of the gas field in 2005 to first gas in late 2010, according to Modulift. It will process gas from the Pluto and Xena gas fields in the Carnarvon Basin, about 190 km northwest of Karratha, Western Australia.

Nick Latham, Modulift Group chairman, commented on the 400 tonne capacity spreader system, "The Modulift 271 range is supplied as standard with a test certificate, a certificate of conformity and is designed for temperature conditions down to -20 degrees centigrade. It is also available off the shelf."
