Marine Technology Reporter

Aquatic Engineering & Construction Ltd., an Acteon company, is an independent operator of modular equipment for the global oil and gas, telecommunications and energy industries. The engineering and construction business provides equipment and services to support flexible product installation, recovery, replacement and decommissioning operations. Aquatic’s range of modular, flexible equipment is available to be transported anywhere in the world and can be dismantled to fit into standard 40 ft. shipping containers, enabling Aquatic kits to be installed on relatively small vessels from more economical quayside locations, if required. Aquatic has tried and tested products and solutions for the installation, recovery and replacement of flexible products, onshore transpooling operations, the handling of flexibles, umbilicals and steel pipes, fleeting control, rapid cutting, straightening steel pipe and coiled tubing, multiple reel lay and ancillary products to assist in the spooling, deployment and recovery operations.

Aquatic can install, replace and recover semi-rigid products such as coiled tubing; mooring lines; power cables; production flowlines; production, gas lift and injection risers; reelable steel pipe; telecommunication cables; umbilicals; water pipes and wire rope products. The Aquatic carousel and integrated tensioner solution has been designed to maximize product capacity, minimize vessel days and maintain operational efficiency in demanding marine installation projects. The system provides the strength and stability that can withstand the installation of the heaviest equipment in deepwater. Its capability and flexibility in all waters is being proven on projects that demand increasingly long subsea tiebacks to processing platforms.
