Subsea Innovation, one of the world’s leading subsea equipment suppliers, is pleased to announce that it has completed the design and manufacture of a unique multi-mattress deployment system (MDS³) for Offshore Marine Management (OMM).
OMM is a leading global service provider specialising in the delivery of subsea solutions for the offshore energy, grid and telecommunications industries and has worked with Subsea Innovation to produce this innovative subsea tool, which will substantially reduce project costs and improve HSE standards offshore.
Its technology will deliver significant time savings consequently driving down associated vessel, equipment and personnel costs, as well as removing the need for either divers or a work class ROV to assist deployment.
The MDS3 was designed and manufactured at Subsea Innovation’s headquarters in Darlington before going through extensive wet testing at PD Ports facility at Hartlepool and finally sea trials.
The design took into account the need for the tool to be easily transported to support global application, and following the wet testing the equipment saw its first action in an offshore campaign that was ran in the first weeks of July.
Already a major player in the manufacture of LARS, as well as tether management systems (TMS), subsea sealing systems, pipeline repair systems and waterstop seals, Subsea Innovation has further demonstrated its capability in the production of a fully functional bespoke subsea tools and solutions.
George Birkett, resources manager at OMM, said: "We have a great team who have a really clear understanding of the needs and the added benefits this will bring to the industry, our clients and to OMM. The collaboration with Subsea Innovation signifies the UK’s specialist subsea capability and our aptitude to deliver out-of-the-box thinking."
Matthew Shaw, project manager at Subsea Innovation, said: "We are thrilled to have been asked to deliver this tool for Offshore Marine Management. We have a vast amount of experience in delivering solutions that make a real difference to the wider offshore industry."
