Maritime Developments (MDL) has won a flex lay project with Bibby Offshore - just after completing an umbilical installation with the EPIC contractor.

The recently concluded project in a North Sea gas field used the MDL RDS-400, a 400-tonne reel drive system, operated by expert MDL offshore personnel and supported by the company’s 3m- radius departure chute. The spread was used for the recovery and replacement of a 2km electrical umbilical.

The subsequent project will use the same RDS model to install a riser in an oilfield offshore
Aberdeen, Scotland.

Dave Gardiner, MDL Business Development & Commercial Manager, said:

"These  two  projects  highlight  the  successful  ongoing  relationship  between  MDL  and  Bibby
Offshore, which actually started when the MDL rental service was launched in 2014.

"With the quick, efficient and safe operations of all our offshore fleet, and the proximity to our extensive pool of services in Scotland, this makes for a beneficial partnership for both companies”.
