Wire installation

socketing and wire rope spooling

Wire installation and handling of steel wire rope

All our expertise within steel wire rope is gathered in our large wire department at the port in Esbjerg. Here we have a huge stock of steel wire rope as well as our large wire workshop where all the work with the wires is carried out. This is also where we perform load and tensile test of steel wires in our test center.

Our many years of experience and expertise in steel wire installation and rigging is in demand and we provide the services all over the world!
