UK: Aquatic’s General Manager EMEA to Speak at Subsea 2012

 

David McKechnie, Aquatic Engineering & Construction Ltd’s general manager Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), will speak at the prestigious Subsea UK 2012 conference in Aberdeen in February. Aquatic, an Acteon company, is a global leader in the provision of powered reels, tensioners and associated equipment, services and personnel.

The title of McKechnie’s paper is “Flexible Intervention – New options to reduce shutdown and disruption”. The presentation will share Aquatic’s perspective on the various options for and give an associated cost–benefit analysis of a flexible intervention service. After providing a historical perspective, McKechnie will discuss the business of retrieving and repairing power and communication cables across the telecommunication and emerging renewable energy sectors and the default option in the oil and gas sector of ”shut down and replace”. He will outline the current market demand and demonstrate how, for an experienced contractor, there is the opportunity to utilise extensive in-house lay and retrieval experience on flexible and semi-rigid products in combination with strong repair skills to deliver a comprehensive, flexible intervention service.

McKechnie has more than 26 years’ experience of deepwater intervention and wide knowledge of the EMEA region across oil, gas, renewable energy, decommissioning and salvage operations.

Aquatic is globally renowned for laying and retrieving flexible and semi-rigid products on the seabed and has proven ability in shallow and deep water, and extensive experience of off- and onshore installation, transpooling, recovery and decommissioning. From a custom-built workshop and yard facility, Aquatic’s clients are offered a complete storage, inspection and management service for spare pipeline and umbilical products and reels. Aquatic’s own extensive range of equipment includes powered-reel drive systems, tensioners and storage reels. This kit is modular in design, which makes it highly flexible through its ability to be dismantled and easily transported by road or sea in standard containers to anywhere in the world for clients.

This means faster, more cost-effective mobilisation and demobilisation: an essential component of success for any commercial project.

Aquatic is part of the Acteon Group’s wider risers, conductors and flowlines offering, and joins the other Acteon companies in linking subsea services across a range of interconnected disciplines. Combining the strengths of a major global organisation with those of independent market specialists, the 17 Acteon companies have complementary skills, experience and technologies that link seabed to surface.

Substructures for UK Offshore Wind

Design, construction and installation

Optimising offshore substructures is one of the key challenges for reducing LCOE. Foundation designers have produced a variety of different solutions: monopiles, GBS, jackets, suction buckets and floating foundations. Looking at U.K. projects – different soils, water depths,fabrication timelines and installation challengescreate many questions for the industry to solve. We’re entering uncharted territory; projects arelarger, farther and more complex than ever completed.

Now is the time to have a close look at lessons learnt and define the room for improvement for the U.K. wind industry.
