BACKDECK equipment maker Maritime Developments Ltd (MDL) has completed a North Sea tie-back, which included delivery of a bespoke solution for handling reels of 12m diameter.

The work scope covered installation of 3 reels of flowlines, jumpers and an umbilical using MDL Thirdgeneration Reel Drive System.

The reels measured from 9.2m to 12m diameter – the largest reel handled by the MDL RDS to date.

To accommodate the larger diameter, MDL designed and manufactured in-house a bespoke set of 12m cradles to safely integrate with the MDL Track and Cradle System, optimising mobilisation and demobilisation times.

On this project the RDS had already been mobilised on the vessel, as the tie-back was a follow-up scope in a multi-project campaign.

Dave Gardiner, MDL VP UK & Europe, said: “By keeping the RDS and track system on board in between projects, we reduced the design and engineering workloads pre-mission and optimised the mobilisation times for the equipment and product across the campaign to date.”
