Swan Hunter Expands Equipment Pool with New Tensioner

Swan Hunter has taken delivery of a new 15Te horizontal 2 track tensioner from Motive Offshore Group.

The tensioner is supplied with an electrical HPU, and has an open PLC control system that allows it to be synchronized with other flexible and cable lay equipment including carousels, reel drive systems and spoolers. The horizontal two track configuration is suited for cable, umbilical and pipeline products, the company explained.

Hamish Cullens, Swan Hunter package manager, said: “We are very pleased to take receipt of the tensioner from Motive, which has been successfully delivered safely, on time, and to standard. We now look forward to putting it to work on its first scheduled project.”

In addition, Swan Hunter has awarded Motive a contract for the design and build of a 450Te reel drive system.

The equipment is due to be delivered in December 2016, and will be operational in January 2017, the company noted.

James Gregg, Motive Offshore sales and operations director said: “The 15Te tensioner marks the completion of our first collaboration with Swan Hunter. Work is also progressing well on the 450Te reel drive system which is one of the largest projects in our company’s history and is on track for completion by the end of the year.”
