Flowline Specialists recently completed work on a major subsea lay project in the Middle East.
Without naming the project or the operator, the Dubai-based unit of the Scottish company announced in a press release that it was contracted to assist in laying various flexible flowlines, umbilicals and cable reels of different sizes and weights.
According to a press release, work on the project involved four pieces of equipment: a 300te modular hub drive system, a 75te shaft drive spooler, a 15te twin-track tensioner, and a three-pair linear cable engine.
The 300te hub drive was fitted with a rail system to allow multi-reel deployment, thereby increasing project efficiency.
Graeme Chalmers, group operations manager, Flowline Specialists, said, “Flowline Specialists FZE is very proud to have been involved in this major subsea project. It not only demonstrated the capabilities of some of our extensive equipment range, but also the expertise of our engineering and operations teams.”
Six technicians from the company were on hand for the project’s duration to operate the equipment and assist with the overall product deployment.
They were ‘praised by the client for their professionalism and willingness to assist in any situation to ensure the project was executed safely and timeously’, the release stated.
The project was completed on-time with zero lost time incidents.
“Over the past five years, we have invested in expanding our product range in order to best serve the needs of our clients around the world. Along with building a robust equipment range, we have established a knowledgeable, technically capable and client-focussed workforce. It is very satisfying to see that recognised by clients, who provide extremely positive comments and praise the professionalism and can-do attitude of our experienced team,” Chalmers said.
