VB 10,000 Prepares for 2012 Lift Season

After post 2011 season maintenance, Versabar's VB 10,000 lift system is seen undergoing load testing in Sabine Pass, Texas. Each of the four main hoist blocks of the system were tested individually, lifting a 1,650-ton water-filled barge. Two additional sets of blocks, which control the functioning of the Claw lift device, also underwent load testing. After performing sea trials, the system will be ready for this season's first lift operation scheduled to occur mid-May.
