Over the past two decades, Garos has been a privileged partner of offshore installers and equipment manufacturers, design offices and test centres for the design and production of standardised and customised force testers. Our solutions therefore meet the strict and specific requirements of the offshore oil sector: corrosion proof, immersion and high pressure resistance.
Our expertise with offshore oil equipment manufacturers
Extensive expertise and demanding requirements in physical measurement serving the offshore oil industry.
Reliability & robustness
Garos sensors meet the stringent reliability and robustness requirements of the oil industry. Our hermetically sealed sensors operate under heavy spray and pressure while providing reliable and accurate measurements over time.
Global geographic coverage
Garos solutions cater to the entire global offshore oil industry, including operators and OEMs.
20 years of experience
Garos has been providing the oil industry with force testing expertise for over 20 years.
Garos designs and manufactures load pins to measure up to 2,000 tonnes of force on winches or anchor systems installed on offshore platforms.
Garos can integrate load pins in oil rig anchor lines to monitor anchor tension.
Garos supplies load pins integrated into the intermediate buoys to measure the tie forces and forestall breakage risks.
Pipe laying towers
Garos load pins are integrated into the installation towers to monitor the forces applied to the pipelines.
Garos supplies tension sensors integrated into harbour or offshore cranes to accurately measure the load lifted.
Garos designs load pins for pipeline tensioners. The sensors measure the tension during the installation of pipelines.
Our products and services for the offshore oil sector
Garos load pins are used to measure and control lifting and anchoring forces in many oil and gas applications.
The tension load cells designed by Garos are used to measure loads on winches or cranes installed on oil platforms.
