Motive Delivers Reel Drive System to Swan Hunter

Swan Hunter has taken delivery of a new 450Te reel drive system from Motive Offshore.

According to Swan Huter who previously took delivery of Motive’s 15Te horizontal 2 track tensioner, the equipment has completed the factory acceptance testing program and is now ready for operations.

“We are pleased to receive delivery of this reel drive system. The unique design, with a swift and simple site assembly process, offers an interesting alternative to other systems on the market” said package manager, John Young.

The vertical screw jacking system allows the system to accommodate reel diameters ranging from 5.0m to 11.4m, with no need to mobilise additional packing frames beneath the towers. The reel drive system can also operate in constant tension mode, supplementing the manual operation modes.

“This marks completion of what has been one of the biggest manufacturing projects that our team has undertaken so far in our company history,” Motive Offshore noted.

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.
