Up until the 1970s, it was common practice to use solid weights to test the safe working loads of cranes in the North Sea oil and gas installations. At the end of that decade, WATER WEIGHTS® water-filled proof load bags became the chosen alternative. They were safer, more flexible and since the bags themselves weigh only 2% of the total achievable load when filled – infinitely easier and economical to ship, handle and store.
The innovation that was WATER WEIGHTS® soon became the method of choice for the whole industry. Since then, we have built on that initial success and expanded its expertise and competence. We now offer a wide range of associated services and engineering project management. Our customer base now includes defense, construction, process, power and utilities, and marine and shipping industries, in addition to the oil and gas business where we originally began.
