Motive to Build Carousel Loading Tower for Swan Hunter

Swan Hunter has awarded Motive Offshore Group a Letter of Intent (LoI) for the design and build of a basket carousel loading tower.

Swan Hunter expects its modular basket carousel and tower lay spread to be available for cable, umbilical and flexible pipeline installations for the 2017 summer season, the company said.

John Young, package manager, said: “We are pleased to announce our agreement with Motive to provide the design and build of our carousel loading tower. This key deliverable, for a robust and capable design that can operate in both the offshore wind and oil & gas markets, will provide us with a strong offering to the market.”

Motive Offshore managing director, Dave Acton, said: “We are excited to be working with Swan Hunter to realize their ambitious plans for bringing high quality marine equipment to the market. Innovative machinery that is easy to use, efficient to mobilize and provide a cost effective method of installing umbilical and flexible pipelines is needed more than ever in the offshore wind and oil and gas industries. The Motive team is ready to begin work on the loading tower project using our collective design and build expertise.”

The design and engineering of the basket carousel is currently ongoing, and is being carried out by Stemar Engineering who were awarded the contract earlier this year, the company added.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
