A Grampian-based offshore services firm has completed a £1.5m project to design and fabricate equipment for a subsea company operating in Ghana.
The 5,000 tonne cable loading tower – the first of its kind designed, fabricated and operated by Motive Offshore – has been tailor-made to meet specific project requirements, including an under-bender chute and height extension sections.
Complete with a new-build 10Te tensioner, the system is capable of handling flexible pipes up to 550mm outer-diameter.
Motive Offshore Group, which is headquartered in Boyndie, near Banff, produced the loading tower for Swan Hunter. Operated by Motive technicians, the equipment is currently being used to deploy flexible pipe from offshore-Ghana.
