Swan Hunter are pleased to announce the completion of our new 450Te Reel Drive System.

The equipment has successfully completed the factory acceptance testing program and is now ready for operations.

The vertical screw jacking system, unique to the reel drive system market, allows the system to accommodate reel diameters ranging from 5.0m to 11.4m, with no need to mobilise additional packing frames beneath the towers. The reel drive system can also operate in constant tension mode, supplementing the manual operation modes. Swan Hunter believe this in-built versatility should provide our clients with an appealing flexibility during multi-reel offshore installation campaigns.

"We are pleased to receive delivery of this Reel Drive System. The unique design, with a swift and simple site assembly process, offers an interesting alternative to other systems on the market” stated package manager, John Young.
