MDL Launches New Tensioner
Maritime Developments (MDL) has introduced a new tensioner at its testing facility in Peterhead, UK.
The 110-tonne 4-track pipelay tensioner, the TTS-4/310, features failsafe grip system, self-centring track system and a modular, road-transportable design, the company explained.
“Ever since we announced our plans to bring to the market a larger model of our patented tensioner, the interest in the system has been on a constant rise,” said Mike Gaskin, MDL commercial director.
The 110Te system is the biggest delivered by MDL to date, with three 50Te systems preceding it – one of which is currently employed in South East Asia, and another used for operations across the North Sea.
