The Wireline Safebeam and Safe Rigup System (WSB)

The Wireline Safe Beam, WSB, is a patented solution that strongly improves safety and operational efficiency during wireline operations, particularly on semi-submersibles.
The WSB reduces many HSE- and efficiency challenges encountered in rigging and BHA handling during wireline operations

Quality Intervention Supplies Wireline Safe-beam for subsea intervention in Malaysia



The basic:
  • Attached directly below top drive/DDM
  • Two remotely controlled lifting/handling winches
  • Easy to transport and handle
  • Complete system fits inside a standard side door basket. Saves vital deck space
  • Faster and safer to rig-up than competitor’s system
  • Interfaces existing type long intervention bails to attach to SFT
  • Hydraulic supply from rig system or top-drive
  • Each winch lifts up to 4,9 MT
  • Lifts can be horizontally transferred between 1300 mm outside RKB and directly above well centre + 20 mm beyond
  • Standard bail interface according to API 8C
  • DNV GL certified as per ”DNV Lifting appliances” 
  • Can be fitted in platform derricks and on land rigs
  • Comes with a handling cradle to enable installation directly above a riser stick-up

The WSB system can be improved additionally by the following add-on features:
  • The Safe Rigup System (SRS)
  • The heave elimination system


key benefits

• In compliance with NORSOK R–003N Safe use of Lifting equipment

• In accordance with the following standards:

–WSB Design Criteria: API 8C (cross)
–DNV GL Lifting Appliances (lifting cassettes)
–DNV GL 2.7.1. (transport basket)
–Dropped objects prevention according to “Working together for safety; Best practice in prevention of falling objects”

• Significantly improves operational efficiency by reducing rig up time and crew demand, scaffolding time and cost

• Provides a minimum foot print for deployment (rig hydraulics used for powering Wireline Safe Beam/Weak Link Bails)

• Improved HSE – larger work window during tool string BHA makeup, no scaffolding, minimized man riding and reduced personnel in Red Zone.
