Bolted joints on offshore and maritime applications

ITH has developed bolting tools and bolting solutions for offshore and maritime industries which include:

  • Ship construction such as  offshore cranes, crane ships, oil drilling ships
  • Offshore wind turbines
  • Maritime sites such as  harbors or oil rigs

For bolted connections in maritime and offshore industries ITH developed specific bolting tools and corresponding equipment:

  • Avoiding corrosion: A special coating for all steel parts prevents corrosion on ITH tools and pumps
  • Compact hydraulic pump series Micro-MAX for fast service applications. Battery driven version Micro-MAX 72 offers working independent from wired power supplies
  • Air powered pneumatic nut runner PDS and pneumatic hydraulic pump series Aero-MAX are ideal for use on oil rigs or drill ships

Find below an overview of examples of bolting applications in offshore and maritime industries. Contact us for more information or with questions regarding your individual bolted joints in maritime industries.
