UK-based subsea umbilicals and power cables supplier JDR has been awarded a contract for intervention, workover and control systems (IWOCS) by Aker Solutions Subsea Division.
The project, scheduled for delivery in summer 2016, will include the first deployment of JDR’s ‘Mark II Reeler’ concept.
The scope of supply includes two x 1200 metre umbilicals, which provide annulus circulation function to subsea systems. Both umbilicals will be supplied on JDR’s new ‘Mark II Reeler’ technology.
David Currie, CEO of JDR, comments: “JDR has collaborated with customers to create a custom engineered reeler design that provides a number of operational benefits. In addition, the new design provides easier access to control panels within the reeler, enabling safer operations offshore. We are delighted to partner with Aker Solutions on this project.”
The umbilicals will be manufactured at JDR’s facility in Littleport, UK, while the reelers will be designed and manufactured at JDR’s facility in Newcastle, UK before delivery to JDR’s Littleport facility for in-house integration and testing.
