New Lighting Bracket Product Range


As the specialist in cable management solutions for extreme environments, we are delighted to announce the launch of our new range of lighting unit accessories at this year’s SPE Offshore Europe Exhibition and Conference in Aberdeen (3rd – 6th September 2019).

We will be exhibiting our cable management product range including the showcasing of our new lighting range for the first time on our stand (1R38) as part of the EIC pavilion in Hall 1.

This launch demonstrates Vantrunk’s ongoing commitment to innovation in the design and development of products suitable for challenging environments such as those found in the oil & gas, energy and heavy engineering industries. All of the new products are designed to be used in conjunction with Vantrunk’s Speedway Cable Ladder, Cable Tray and Intelok Steel Framing Systems. The new lighting unit accessory range also includes a variety of mounting brackets, cable guides and handrail mounting kits.

The accessory range features a variety of brackets that includes a selection of fixed angle and adjustable angle variants that also accommodate numerous mounting conditions, including mounting to the side or above and/or below Vantrunk’s Cable Management Systems. This ensures the range provides adaptable solutions that cover various onsite scenarios.

Also being launched alongside the mounting brackets is a series of Handrail Mounting Kits that cover a range of heights and situations, and a collection of cable guides that are designed to direct and protect the cabling for the lighting unit.

Vantrunk’s Technical Team worked in close collaboration with Chalmit, part of the Hubbell Harsh & Hazardous Group, to utilise their extensive experience of supplying reliable, quality-driven and cost effective lighting solutions, in order to ensure that the lighting unit accessories meet customers’ requirements and provide value-added solutions. The team also took care to ensure that the new product range is fully compatible with lighting units from all leading manufacturers.

Matt Ryder, Technical Manager at Vantrunk comments “Our technical team developed the lighting unit mounting brackets so that it is possible to mount lighting units directly to hardware, such as Vantrunk’s Cable Management Systems, that are already installed. This eliminates the need to drill existing steelwork or erect dedicated poles or structures in order to install lighting units.

“These brackets form a part of a range of solutions that can significantly reduce the weight, cost and installation time of lighting installations, while ensuring that designers and engineers can still achieve the project’s lighting design.”

Alan Campbell, Vantrunk’s Group Projects Director adds: “The biennial SPE Offshore Exhibition and Conference is the ideal forum to launch this innovative new range of lighting brackets and accessories as it continues to be a leading event for sharing best practice in the design and specification of offshore environments.

“Our focus as a market leader in cable management solutions for extreme environments is to offer the industry products that help to manage the cost, weight and programme of offshore projects while aiding improved design, functionality and resilience. Development of the new range is aligned to these goals and complements Vantrunk’s reputation for innovative, market-focused design.”

Cygnus modules exit BiFab’s yard

news story

Burntisland Fabrication (BiFab) has reported that 4600 tonne Cygnus accommodation module has set sail from its Methil yard in Fife, Scotland to the North Sea on July 23, 2015.

The 4600 tonne Cygnus accommodation module, together with a 3400 tonne wellhead jacket and piles, are now en route to the Cygnus gas field located 150 kilometres off the Lincolnshire coast.

The sail away marks the completion of two major contracts by the Fife fabricator on behalf of the gas field’s operator GDF SUEZ E&P UK Ltd (part of the ENGIE Group) and partners Centrica Energy and Bayerngas.


Central Processing Facility

Vantrunk have been awarded a contract to supply the Speedway SW6 cable ladder system and Heavy Duty HR & HR100 cable tray system by Tecnicas Reunidas for the  Central Processing Facility at the Touatgaz Project.

On August 7, 2013 in Algiers, “Groupement TouatGaz”, a partnership between SONATRACH and the GDF SUEZ Group operating the Touat gas field, signed an EPCC (engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning) contract with the Spanish company Técnicas Reunidas for the development of the Touat field located in southwest Algeria. Técnicas Reunidas was awarded the contract after a tender offer procedure opened July 17, 2013 in which four international companies participated.

This contract covers the field’s first phase development plan, consisting mainly in the construction of an industrial natural gas treatment complex and collection system. Production launch for the Touat field is planned for late 2016. The project will produce annually 4.5 billion standard cu.m of gas and 630,000 barrels of condensate.
