From its custom-built workshop and yard facility, clients are offered a complete storage, inspection and management service for spare pipeline and umbilical products and reels. Aquatic’s own extensive range of equipment includes powered-reel drive systems, tensioners and storage reels. This kit is modular in design, which makes it highly flexible and able to be dismantled and easily transported by road or sea in standard containers to anywhere in the world; for clients this means faster, more cost-effective mobilisation and demobilisation, essential components of success for any commercial project.
