Maats Tech Ltd wins major carousel contracts from Aker Solutions
17 June 2010
Maats Tech Ltd has signed two contracts with an Aker Solutions group company for the supply of a 3000 tonne capacity below deck carousel system and a 6000 tonne on-deck carousel system for the new-build Aker Connector installation vessel.
The turnkey contracts include the provision of associated tensioners and spooling arrangements, both above and below deck, for handling the product as required. The carousels are due for delivery in 2011 and will be installed by Maats in Norway, where the ship is to be outfitted.
The carousels are designed both for handling umbilicals for oilfield use and High Voltage cable laying activities.
John Holt, managing director of Maats Tech Ltd said “We are delighted that Aker Solutions has selected our proposal after a very thorough tendering process. We are pleased to add Aker Solutions to our customer list and look forward to delivering two first class systems next year.”
