The Maxine Passive Heave Compensator (PHC) reduces peak forces and fluctuations during lifting and lowering operations where waves are generating oscillating movements. This enables our customers to work for longer at high sea states, minimise downtime and extend weather windows.

For use both above water and underwater
No external power required
Reduces costs by enabling you to work longer at high sea state
No special lifting frames are required
Increases the operational weather window

Efficient lifting operations

The Maxine is designed for lifting operations offshore and has a range up to 500 tonnes. Other load limits are available on request. 

Maxine PHC ensures the rope is kept taut at all times, and reduces peaks and troughs by following the motion of the sea. This allows work to proceed safely, efficiently and in a controlled manner. The system is positioned between the hook of the crane and the load, and can also be used underwater. It operates as a stand-alone system, eliminating the need for an external power source.
