Introducing Lankhorst Ropes Offshore Division…
Quintas & Quintas Offshore becomes Lankhorst Ropes Offshore Division from June 2009. The new name reflects Lankhorst Ropes commitment to growing its offshore business in SPM and Deepwater ropes.
Quintas & Quintas was acquired by Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group bv in January 2008. Since its acquisition of Q&Q, Lankhorst has invested over Euro 10M in new machines, test beds and increased rigging capacity.
Through its worldwide agent Offspring International, Lankhorst has supplied deepwater mooring lines for the Thunder Hawk, semi-submersible, floating production unit in 6,050ft (1,800m) of water and Cascade-Chinook Submerged Turret Production buoy moored in 8,677ft (2,635m) of water, in the Gulf of Mexico.
For its Single Point Mooring business, Lankhorst is undertaking independent testing of mooring lines in accordance with OCIMF recommendations, and developing new types of rope materials and floats.
Lankhorst Ropes, Managing Director, Wilco Stroet explained the background to the name change: “Traditionally Lankhorst Ropes has not been active in the offshore market. In 2007 we made a strategic decision to move into offshore and found Quintas & Quintas the most innovative and best performing rope company in the market.
“The name change to Lankhorst Ropes Offshore Division is intended to reflect the broader involvement of Lankhorst in the offshore industry, that brings together Quintas & Quintas with elements of our Engineering Products Division.”
Dave Rowley, Offspring International, welcomes the name change. “The support of the Lankhorst Group has been vital in enabling us to continue to offer high performance, rope mooring solutions. The investment in expanded rigging facilities to provide the world’s largest rigging shop, and development of SPM and deepwater ropes, will ensure we are able to offer the best mooring ropes in the industry.”
