Delmar and MDL Jointly Launch LiveWire

Delmar Systems and Maritime Developments (MDL) have formed a joint-partnership to launch LiveWire, an innovative solution for wire rope inspection and change-out services.

LiveWire will be based at Delmar’s Port Fourchon, LA facility and will support the Gulf of Mexico’s offshore crane and winch market including floating production platforms, drilling rigs and construction vessels. The system will be suitable for both onshore and offshore operations depending on customer requirements, the company explained.

Mark Williamson, MDL AMS president, said: “We are excited to be working with Delmar Systems on LiveWire, the second phase of our partnership which already features a flex-lay base in Fourchon. By combining MDL’s 20+ years of experience of developing back-deck solutions and Delmar’s 50+ years of handling and installing mooring systems, we were able to develop LiveWire and re-define the traditional solution for handling large diameter wire ropes. At MDL we are constantly looking at ways to evolve our product range and LiveWire is another example of our ingenious instinct leading to a superior product offering.”

Matt Smith, Delmar’s VP of Operations, added: “The industry need for proper material handling in an efficient and cost-effective manner led us to the solution at hand. Delmar working with MDL to provide a technically superior product and overall service will undoubtedly change the asset owner’s perspective on deep water crane maintenance and operations. Delmar’s implementation and support service for large diameter long wire rope inspection, installation and service is a natural extension of our mooring methodologies and core business.”
