Offshore handling systems specialist, Caley Ocean Systems completed the refurbishment and upgrade of a 2,500-ton, 25-meter diameter reel carousel for Italian offshore contractor Saipem. The reel carousel will be used to transport umbilicals and flowlines from Norway to China on Big Lift heavy lift vessel Happy Rover, for the deepwater Liwan 3-1 field gas project in the South China Sea.

Originally supplied over 15 years ago by Caley, the carousel has been extensively used by Saipem on a wide range of projects. The refurbishment project involved restoring the system to an 'as new' condition with full operational capability. Specifically, Caley refurbished the carousel structure, spooling tower tensioner, power unit control van and electrical drives container.

Commenting on the Saipem reel carousel refurbishment, Gregor McPherson, sales director, Caley Ocean Systems noted, "All our offshore handling systems systems are built to last, with the emphasis on the quality of the original design and manufacture. We expect the refurbished Saipem reel carousel will be good for at least another 15 years active service."

Caley reel carousels are widely used for handling a wide range of rigid and flexible pipe products including cables, umbilicals, dynamic risers and hoses. The company has experience delivering carousel systems ranging from the world's largest carousel with a capacity of 9,000 tons (OD 32 meters) through to a 400-ton, sea and road transportable, portable modular carousel.
