Aberdeen based Maritime Developments, which suppliers specialist back-deck equipment to the oil and gas industry, has delivered a 400-tonne reel drive system (pictured) to a major offshore contractor.
This is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio – the 5th since the product’s launch in 2013 – and the system has now been deployed for front-line operations by the client.
Established in 1999, Maritime Developments designs, manufactures and delivers back-deck equipment for the global oil, gas and renewables sectors from its bases in Aberdeen and Peterhead.
Mike Gaskin, Commercial Director, Maritime Developments, commented: “This system highlights the capability of our team to find innovative solutions to meet the needs of industry players. The company is now looking to add another reel drive to our rental fleet in the near future to address the growing industry demand for the solution.”
The five systems delivered include Maritime Developments’ rental unit, which has already been used on five North Sea multi-reel installation projects. Key features of the RDS include automatic fail-safe clamps, as well as an automated raising and lowering system which negates working at height. It is also road transportable and can be reassembled on the quayside.
