ROV Shackle

  • Intervention Tools

Seanic designs and manufactures a variety of hydraulic ROV actuation kits for shackles ranging from 5-500 tons for the purpose of lowering or lifting heavy equipment to or from the sea floor without cutting lifting wires. ROV shackles adhere to DNV 2.7-1 standards to ensure compatibility for your subsea needs.


Constructed from an alloy steel and designed for simple operation through the use of an ROV manipulator, this tool enables an ROV to make or break shackle connections hydraulically when adding subsea hardware to a field, landing manifold or other subsea construction. Seanic’s actuation kits for shackles are built with a mechanical override capacity, in order to make or break shackles without the need for hydraulic power.
