MDL Scoops Up West Africa Project

Maritime Developments has secured a flexible installation project offshore Ghana.

The work scope covers an installation of a flowline using MDL third-generation reel drive system, operated by the MDL offshore service team.

The equipment was loaded out in components from MDL’s Peterhead, Scotland facility for road transportation to Cadiz, Spain to meet the client’s installation vessel. The vessel will then travel to Takoradi, Ghana to continue mobilising other aspects of the project.

MDL supported the client by providing structural and draughting design to facilitate the vessel integration of the MDL reel drive system and MDL underbender structure. MDL supported the project team with deck planning, structural design, class approval interface and remote mobilisation support.

Dave Gardiner, MDL BD & commercial manager, said: “We are extremely pleased to have secured this project and are looking forward to bringing the market’s leading reel drive system into West Africa, where we hope to see it operational over and above the current work scope.

“We are also glad that we were able to demonstrate further project efficiencies to the client through our consultancy and engineering services. As the equipment provider we are best placed to advise the project teams on the most optimum deck setup to minimise lost time pre-mission, in port and at sea.”

The project is expected to conclude in March 2019.
