Nansen 8-strand HMPE rope

Acera™ Nansen is made from Acera™ genuine HMPE yarns, and has earned a DNV GL type approval. Nansen is the result of a unique 8-strand, back-twisted rope construction process. It is produced from 8 reels in groups of two strands, revolving around each other in pairs to form the 8 strand plaited construction.

Our unique back-twisting process ensures identical strands, independent of left or right direction. The result is a more stabilized rope with a higher realization factor – providing a better weight-to-strength ratio. This Acera™ yarn is individually coated through a rotating 360° Lick-roller process. This cumbersome single yarn coating process demonstrates the uncompromising commitment to the quality standards of Acera™. Single yarn coating is proven to significantly enhance internal and external abrasion resistance, and extend service life and strength. Available in very long lengths and very high diameters. Acera™ Nansen is an alternative to the cumbersome steel wire ropes. It is stronger and safer, with significantly less snap-back/recoil. The corresponding weight is 7 times lower. Acera Nansen is the basis for heavy duty lifting slings (i.e. subsea lifting of over 1100 tonnes breaking strength or subsea pull-in ropes).

Suitable for:
Fishery Lifting Mooring Offshore Towing
