MDL Supports Subsea 7 Umbilical Installation Campaign in GoM

Flex-lay equipment specialist Maritime Developments Limited (MDL) has completed a deepwater project in the Gulf of Mexico for Subsea 7.

The project work scope included handling and installation of a deepwater umbilical using the MDL RDS-400-02, supported by the company’s offshore personnel.

The reel drive system is part of an MDL flex-lay spread, which has a permanent base in Delmar Systems’ Port Fourchon facility, including a 650-tonne ringer crane, as part of the recently announced partnership between the two companies.

Tom O’Malley, project manager at Subsea 7, said: “From start to finish MDL delivered a high-quality solution for the umbilical installation campaign. The service personnel operated safely and were responsive to any client requests offshore.

“We continue to be impressed with the technology and innovation that MDL brings to the industry and look forward to seeing what’s next.”

Mark Williamson, president MDL Americas, said: “This project gave MDL the ability to showcase just how portable our equipment is, how flexible our approach is to customer service, and the various ways this combination can add value to any offshore project.”

This MDL maiden project in the Gulf will soon be followed by another deepwater flexible installation in the basin, using the MDL TTS-4/310 Series Tensioner, a 110-tonne 4-track system.
