Technical Details

Pipe “stalks” are pre-assembled at a spooling base on land, before being spooled on to the storage reel(s) on the vessel. The vessel then transits to the field and the pipe line is straightened before being lowered to the sea bed. Pipe line end terminations and manifolds can be installed using the dedicated PLET handling system, and piggyback lines installed attached to the main pipeline. 

  • horizontal axis reels, suitable for storing up to 5000t of product

  • aligner wheel and tracked straightener for straightening the pipe and guiding into the tensioners

  • inclinable lay tower for laying pipe in shallow to deep water 

  • tracked tensioners for holding the pipe and lowering to the sea bed, suitable for rigid and flexible pipe
