COVID-19 Update: We hope everyone stays healthy during the ongoing Corona-crisis. Green Pin® and its corporate parent Van Beest have taken all necessary precautions to ensure a safe environment for our customers, employees and suppliers. However, business operations (including opening hours, production and logistics) continue as usual. Due to the circumstances, the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston and the Offshore Northern Seas exhibition in Stavanger have been cancelled so we hope to see you at the next edition. Be well.

Green Pin Power Sling® -
Lift the same heavy load
with a lighter wire.

The Green Pin Power Sling® Shackle lets you save up to 20% on synthetic- and steel wire rope costs thanks to its revolutionary design. It has an optimal D/d ratio and the widest crown (+10%) in the industry.

The DNV-GL Type Approved Green Pin Power Sling® Shackle also offers a surge in safety thanks to increased safety margins. The long-term performance is guaranteed by extensive fatigue testing (over 40.000 cycles). Heavy lifting has never been easier. It offers riggers great handling thanks to the lower body weight and multiple handling points.

Green Pin Tycan®  

Green Pin Tycan® is a fibre chain that is up to eight times lighter than steel, yet just as strong. It is soft to the touch and resistant to water, chemicals, grease, salt and low temperatures. Green Pin Tycan® has an excellent safety-performance (e.g. no cuts to hands, better ergonomics) and leads to many efficiencies resulting from its low weight (e.g. fewer equipment needed to handle the chain itself, increased rigger productivity). In a four-leg configuration a Green Pin Tycan® assembly can reach a Working Load Limit of up to 14.2 ton. The Lashing Capacity goes up to 13.6 tons. For more information about the benefits and its DNV-GL certification, visit the Green Pin Tycan® webpage.
