Topside Installation

SWOS works alongside customers to custom design rigging modules that increase the efficiency and safety of lifting motors, winches, jackets, piles, shims and other topside equipment for installation on platforms.

Our synthetic rigging systems are lightweight, easy to handle, and require less operators and deck space. Our goal is to drive unique solutions that improve safety while lowering your operating costs.

In addition to providing positioning lines for floatovers, SWOS works directly with engineers during the design phase of floatover projects to customize rigging systems for integrated topside projects all over the world.
