Maritime Developments sends 110-tonne pipelay tensioner to Asia Pacific

Maritime Developments (MDL) has dispatched its new 4-track pipelay tensioner to Asia Pacific, after securing the first job for the system with a global offshore contractor.

The portable 110-tonne unit will be used for an umbilical installation in the Indian Ocean, to transition 28km of product from the beach to seabed, at 300m water depth.

The tensioner will be operated by the company’s experienced crew as part of the MDL Offshore Service, providing flex-lay solutions for global projects, and the campaign is expected to conclude in early March.

Mike Gaskin, MDL commercial director, said “This award, so soon after the system’s delivery, demonstrates there is hunger in the industry for well thought-out, value-adding equipment – despite the negative market conditions.

“It’s great to be supporting a global offshore contractor with our solution, and with an option to demobilise the system in the region there is an opportunity to assist other local operators in their cost-cutting efforts.

“This also follows shortly from the announcement of our new business development director for APAC, Paul Douglas, allowing us to provide ongoing support to our existing and future clients in Asia Pacific.”

The system is the biggest delivered by MDL to date, and will be the second TTS-4 system employed on operations in Asia Pacific, following a 50-tonne unit order to the region in 2014.
