CASE STUDY 2:
Capex restraints in recent years have resulted in a considerable increase in demand for our asset refurbishment services. The physical condition of the reeler in this project presented a challenge. Unused for over 6 years, the reeler was shipped to us from Malaysia where it had been ‘abandoned’ in an external storage facility.
- Zone 1 Hazardous Area
- 76mm diameter
- 2,150m length
- 10 lines with max working pressure of 20k psi
- 3 electrical quad cables
Given this reeler had been manufactured by HCS, the quality of the steel frame and substructure were 100% assured. Every component of the disassembled unit was reworked, shot blast and repainted. All hydraulics, valves and electrics were replaced. New enhanced features were incorporated including external greasing points. Safety features, including interlocking safety guards, were engineered and fitted to upgrade the reeler to the current machinery directive standards. Finally, a new umbilical was spooled and on site FAT test completed prior to shipping as per client instructions.
On time and on budget this 16-year-old reeler left our factory in virtually “as new” condition fully certified to latest industry standards.
