J.D. Neuhaus NEW Compact EH100 Monorail Hoist for BOP Handling

 J.D. Neuhaus has just released and delivered a new EH100 - 100 metric ton monorail hoist system for BOP stack handling and other offshore and heavy industrial applications.  

This new EH100 is the result of a client's requirement for a shorter overall footprint.  The hoist - trunion section is mounted into a pair of new four wheeled 50 metric ton trolleys (compared to four 25 metric ton trolleys in the previous design) which reduces the overall length by 4 feet 9 inches!

The first new EH100, shown in the above photo during testing, is also equipped with rack and pinion trolley drives to provide stability and safety when dealing with additional forces due to the natural motions of the offshore platform.  The bottom clevis is designed to mate with the client's lifting lug and is copper plated for spark resistance.  Solid bronze trolley wheels, corrosion resistant epoxy paint, and our offshore protection package round out the list of options outfitted on this system.
