Torquer Ltd was originally set up in August 2013 to design, develop, build and launch a specialised product, the HALO, to solve a well-known and longstanding problem facing the Oil & Gas sector, i.e. controlling the orientation of containers as they are loaded to and from offshore installations. This is a major problem for the sector and currently serious health and safety issues exist.
The Construction Industry also faces similar health and safety issues and challenges related to controlling load orientation which our product would solve.
Torquer Ltd provides a very simple, low tech, low cost solution for which there is strong interest from both the Construction and O&G sectors, as well as from health and safety personnel in major organisations. At last year’s “Vertikal Days” Exhibition one lifting industry professional commented:
This is the most innovative solution I have seen in the last five years
Following the development of a number of working prototypes the company designed and fabricated the first pre-production HALO units which have undergone extensive and successful field trials, and further development of the product is ongoing.
The company will move to full production of the HALO units in 2019.
