Green Pin ROV Shackles


We supply the Green Pin® ROV Shackles produced by Van Beest at their modern forging facility in Holland. Green Pin® ROV Release Polar shackles are available in three different types. As the name states, these shackles are designed for releasing a load only. The bolts have no threads, so screwing is not required.

  • Green Pin® ROV Release Polar Shackle with spring pins, has two spring pins as securing devices. This configuration is strictly for in-line loading and may not be side loaded. This solution is simple and relatively cheap and has the possibility to connect the two safety pins for single grabbing with the ROV. Ranging in capacity from 17- 85 tonne.
  • Green Pin® ROV Release Polar Shackle with locking clamp guarentees full performance, including side loading. If multiple sling legs are used, or if there is a risk for side loads, a specially designed locking clamp with a securing spring pin should be used. This locking clamp replaces the functionality of a standard nut.
    – 50% of the original WLL on side loads, same as Green Pin® Standard and Polar shackles.
    – Pin can rotate freely when secured, so there will be no unintended unlocking of the clamp or wire ropes that get stuck.
    – Double safety with the possibility to connect them for single grabbing with the ROV. Ranging in capacity from 17 – 85 tonne.
  • Green Pin® ROV Spring Release Polar Shackle, which may be used for in-line loading only. This semi automatic ROV shackle has a double safety to prevent accidental release of the load. However it is possible to connect the safety pins to enable single grabbing by the ROV. This reduces operating time significantly. Ranging in capacity from 12 to 150 tonne.
