MDL Tensioner Executes Cable Lay Project Off Mexico

MDL has concluded a maiden cable lay project offshore Mexico, marking a major milestone for the Mexican subsea market.

The company’s modular tensioning spread, featuring the MDL TTS-2/140 Series Tensioner, was used for the installation of a 25mm fibre optic cable on the Eni Amoca/Miztón project.

The mission was completed in cooperation with MDL’s Mexico-based partner, Frontera Offshore, and with MDL’s USA-based partner, Delmar Systems.

This project was the first for the country to use a portable flex-lay spread to install a shallow water cable.

Brad McNeill, CEO of Frontera Offshore said: “We are pleased that after promoting the flexible back-deck solutions in the Mexican market we have now completed our first installation project. We expect that this will be the first of many.

“Our view is that the market is seeking flexible and lower cost alternatives, and MDL equipment can be installed on any DP OSV and used to deploy or recover flexible products in shallow or deep water.”

Andrew Blaquiere, MDL VP Americas said: “Executing MDL’s first project in Mexico is a major milestone and solidifies our reputation as a market leader. With strategic placement of MDL equipment in the USA, we are giving our Mexican client base access to portable technology and equipment which eliminates the cost of bringing a specialized cable-lay vessel to the region.

“Working in partnership with Frontera Offshore, we look forward to delivering more projects and bringing more expertise to the offshore Mexico market.”
