MDL Equipment Executes T&T Flex-Lay Campaign

Maritime Developments’ flex-lay spread has concluded its latest project in the Atlantic.

The MDL’s 400-tonne reel drive system and patented 4-track tensioner – both forming part of the MDL Offshore Service fleet – were deployed alongside the company’s portable vertical lay system (PVLS), as part of a flexible installation offshore Trinidad and Tobago.

The system mobilised on board the North Sea Giant at the start of the year, before heading to the Caribbean for the 35-day campaign, which included flexline and umbilical lays.

Once the project concluded, the spread returned to Europe, where it was demobilised off the vessel in a 48-hour operation.

Greig May, MDL rental manager, said: “The project went well and ran smoothly with no issues which is our objective on every job, so both the client and our team were happy with the outcome.

“This was the largest demobilisation that we have carried out to date, but nothing we couldn’t handle and all went to plan.”
