Lay Chutes and Sheaves


Deep Down has a variety of over-boarding lay chutes to meet the requirements of subsea installations. These lay chutes have been designed to provide safe work access for personnel through the integral railed platforms. The units can accommodate most vessel configurations and have the durability to withstand the consistently increasing loads during deployment and recovery operations. Deep Down has a variety of radiuses to meet individual installation requirements or we can fabricate a unit for your specific project requirements.

Umbilical Sheaves

Deep Down's umbilical sheaves are smaller than the average lay chute, are designed to stand alone in a base frame or hung from the lifting eyes. They are capable of handling up to a 3" umbilical providing protection from over-bending stresses and point loading. Engineered to reduce the risks and hazards in over-boarding operations.
