• Housing made of reinforced concrete with 16-m long rebar, providing a strength of 30,000 kN.
  • Three hydraulic jacks fitted with mechanical position-clamping legs (to maintain the load after cutting the hydraulic power supply). Maximum tension: 24,000 kN.
  • Many opportunities anchor at the base and along the frame.


  • Static loads
  • Cyclic loads
  • Transverse excitation (bending)
  • Monitoring (acoustic , …) breaks during the test
  • End testing capabilities

Example of MRE applications

  • Resistance and fatigue characterization of the anchoring cables.
  • Resistance and fatigue characterization of electrical cables
  • Characterization of the vibrational behavior of umbilicals and flexible off-shore
