Rosetti Marino, a turnkey builder of oil platforms and service vessels for the offshore sector, has chosen a Lankhorst LankoForce rope for bollard pull testing for its new platform supply vessels (PSV) and anchor handling tugs. The rope was used recently to test the company's most powerful tug-to-date with a bollard pull of 220 metric tons.

Based in Ravenna, Italy, Rosetti Marino specializes in PSVs designed to provide assistance to offshore oil platforms and safely transport equipment and material to and from the platforms—even those located in very rough waters, such as the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, particularly in adverse weather conditions.

Since 2010, bollard pull testing has become standard practice for newly built steel tugs. The test provides a good measure of the tugboat’s maximum pulling load. Contacted to supply a bollard pull test rope at short notice, Lankhorst supplied an 88mm diameter, 300m LankoForce rope made from high modulus polyethylene (HMPE) Dyneema. The rope has an actual breaking load of 4806kN (490 mT) (spliced).
