Lifting Anchors

The Imenco Lifting Anchors (or Latches) have been manufactured and used since the late 1990s and are known in the subsea market for their ease of use and dependability for safe lifting operations. The Imenco Lifting Anchors are easily installed and released by ROV or diver. The Imenco Lifting Anchors are built from high strength stainless steel and is hence very durable and dependable.

The Imenco Lifting Anchors have a slightly different design than the Imenco Guidewire Anchors and does not have a shear pin design and should therefor not be used in a guiding system in the same way as the Imenco Standard Guidewire Anchors or the Imenco Slimline Guidewire Anchors.

The Imenco Lifting Anchors are recognized by their slender bodies and wider heads. This gives each Imenco Lifting Anchor a shoulder for resting on the top of the guidepost or receptacle. An easily accessible release sleeve is utilized for releasing an Imenco Lifting Anchor. The release sleeve is painted orange for easy recognition, and connected mechanically to the locking dogs. This gives a visual verification of the locking dogs position (Locked / Unlocked).

The Imenco Lifting Anchors are equipped with three locking dogs which transfer the load onto the retaining shoulder of the guidepost. The Imenco Lifting Anchors are designed according to Directive 2006/42/EC of the European Parliament, with a safety factor of 5 against breakage.

The Lifting Anchor is delivered with a Safety Clip, which is required during lifting operations to ensure that no accidental release of the anchor occurs. All Imenco Lifting Anchors can be modified to suit individual needs.
