MDL tensioner for umbilical system in the Indian Ocean

UK-based Maritime Developments Ltd. (MDL) has sent its new four-track pipelay tensioner to the Asia/Pacific region – the first application for the system with a global offshore contractor.

The portable 110-tonne unit, recently unveiled at the company’s testing facility in Peterhead, Scotland, will be used for an umbilical installation in the Indian Ocean. It will assist in the transfer of product over 28 km, from the beach to seabed, at 300 m water depth.

MDL Offshore Service’s team will operate the tensioner, with the campaign expected to finish in early March.
