The best solutions for pipe- and cable-laying operations

We design and build high performance, low risk flex-lay systems capable of installing power cables, umbilical cables and flexible pipelines. Close cooperation with our customers’ operators – combined with our industry experience – ensures we deliver the very best solutions.

A flex-lay system typically includes tensioners, the tower structure, aligner, centraliser, hang-off clamp and worktable. It is supported by associated deck equipment such as storage carousels, deck chutes, spooling tensioners and winches.
