In 2009, Redaelli’s commercial network expanded by the opening of Shanghai subsidiary. In China, Redaelli Shanghai primarily operates in the offshore industry and the lifting industry. Being a foreign-owned company in China, Redaelli Shanghai overcomes the culture barrier and adapts to the ways of business conducted in China. Now the subsidiary is well established reflected by the high growth rate of their sales in the Chinese market.
One of the focus of Redaelli has been in the offshore O&G sector. China’s fast growing offshore industries becomes Redaell’s target market. The company supplies specialty wire ropes, especially the ones in large diameter, to the offshore industry, such as FLEXPACK, temporary mooring lines, permanent anchor lines, etc. The wire ropes are high performance with higher load limited and resistance to wear, thus providing longer service life.
Apart from the offshore O&G industry, Redaelli supplies a complete range of wire rope products for industries such as shipbuilding, cranes, mining, etc.
Redaelli is one of the global market leaders in the design and manufacture of specialty steel wire ropes. In China, Redaelli Shanghai supplies high end wire ropes to big companies such as CSSC Guangzhou Huangpu Shipbuilding, Wuchang Shipbuilding, Qingdao Wuchuan Shipyard, CNOOC, COSL, CNOOC Engineering, COSCO, ZPMC, CIMC Raffles, China Gold Group, Shandong Energy Group, Fuwa Heavy Industry, and Fankou Lead & Zine Mine.
The company have been receiving wire rope orders for heavy lifting and mooring applications, such as permanent mooring lines with diameter of 114mm for FPSO “Nan Hai Sheng Li”, 142mm x 3650m wire rope for 5000T salvage crane vessel – the thickest and longest steel wire rope ever sold to a Chinese customer, mooring lines for world’s largest ultra deepwater rig – D90, FLEXPACK wire rope for 1000T offshore wind turbine installation vessel, etc. The wire ropes that the company supplies are mainly in large diameter.
