Innovo Reel Drive Executes Mediterranean Sea Campaign
Innovo has recently completed work for a contractor in the Mediterranean Sea that has seen the INNODRIVE reel drive system achieve 15 months umbilical laying and spooling activity with 0% downtime.
Innovo said it was selected by the contractor thanks to its system’s unrivaled reliability and following successful previous contract delivery.
Stefano Malagodi, general manager of Innovo, said, “The INNODRIVE is our response to the demand from operators and contracts for a powerful, reliable and quick-to-mobilise reel drive system for today’s market.
“It can transport 800 ton reels in a sea-state of eight with only the hub engaged and without sea-fastenings. We believe this makes it not only the largest available worldwide, but also the most economical thanks to time savings.
“Customers have the added advantage of using our Electrical Driven Lay Spread (EDLS) system which we provide in partnership with Sparrows Group. It enables us to reduce the staff dedicated to system operation by up to 40%.
“These figures demonstrate that Innovo is well-placed to deliver the cost savings and predictably reliable equipment that the market demands.”
