DOF Subsea Hires Sparrows for Dumbarton Field Ops

DOF Subsea UK has utilised Sparrows’ 50T tensioner system during the recovery and installation of flexible risers / flowlines in the Dumbarton Field, approximately 220km north east of Aberdeen.

DOF Subsea required the 50Te tensioner to be mounted to their HLS (Horizontal Lay System) and used during project operations onboard the Normand Reach.

The tensioner was used to retrieve the product from the seabed. The tensioner was then used to relay the product along its planned route. This offshore work started in the second week of July and was successfully completed as planned.


Following a second scope of work for DOF Subsea, the tensioner was demobilised and returned to Sparrows in Aberdeen.
