Subsea Technology & Rentals Ltd (STR), global specialists in the design, production and rental of advanced subsea technology for the offshore energy industry, are pleased to announce the addition of SMTís Light Weight Taut Wire to their equipment sales and rental inventory. STR have signed an exclusive sales agency agreement to promote and sell SMT Taut Wire product globally.

Key benefits of this environmentally friendly system include, its vertical height when stowed, the very small hydraulic power pack used to raise and lower the boom arm into position and the fact that only three small cables are required for installation into the vesselís Dynamic Positioning system (plus two power cables between the power supplies and taut wire).  Compared to other systems on the market these benefits significantly reduce installation time and cost, footprint on deck and shipping costs.

Neil Jackson, Sales and Operations Manager at STR said: "As worldwide providers of specialist marine equipment we are always looking to invest in new, well designed products like the SMT Taut Wire.  Positive feedback from our customers suggests theyíre already reaping the benefits this cost effective, market leading product has to offer.
