BOP Handling Systems



In the dangerous environment of an oil rig, the manipulation and positioning of a BOP (Blow Out Preventer) requires reliable, robust and efficient equipment suited to the humidity, dust or hazardous conditions with a high risk of explosion.

JD Neuhaus monorail hoists are specifically designed for BOP handling systems on land and on jack-up and semi-submersible drilling platforms. Their compact design is optimal for confined spaces and come in both double trolley as well as 4 trolley traverse drive versions. Available with pneumatic or hydraulic drives, to eliminate risk of explosion, and able to lift up to 200 metric tons, the JD Neuhaus line of monorail hoists fulfill all requirements for this special application.
