Ruby Anniversary celebrations for Norwegian Hook

The original Henriksen Hook design still widely used after 40 years

Henriksen Hooks AS of Norway will be celebrating the 40th birthday of its well-known boat lifting hook at Seawork.

Way back In 1834 the Henriksen family business began making a wide range of metal products for the marine industry. By 1978 an offshoot of H Henriksen had begun to specialise in the design and manufacture of launching hooks and the Henriksen Hook was born…

Based today in Tønsberg on Norway’s Oslo Fjord the company’s Hook has become established among users as the safest and most reliable means of launching a boat from a single crane with over 10,000 hooks in use around the world.

In recent years, the company has been responsible for innovations such as a hook that can monitor its own long-term exposure to loads, hooks that incorporate an electrical release system and others with a load bearing capacity nine times greater than their registered weight limit. Many of these will be on display at Seawork including a recently introduced towing hook developed specifically for smaller vessels such as workboats and harbour craft.

“It is because so many lives are dependent upon the integrity of our products that we see a continuous need to innovate and look for new ways of increasing the safety of seafarers,” said Ole-Rasmus Undrum, sales manager for Henriksen Hooks. “This policy has served us well for forty years so we intend to celebrate it in Southampton with our friends and customers in July. We haven’t decided what form our celebrations will take yet, but I am confident that when we have, invitations will be in demand.”
