De Pretto Industrie has successfully designed and delivered the new Lowering Link for the upgraded 2-fall A&R system of the Deep Blue vessel.
The new lifting tool meets the increased capacity of the upgraded A&R system, and it will be used to routinely abandon and recover pipelines and associated structures in deep water. Our Special Projects team, working in close collaboration with TechnipFMC, was able to develop this unique solution: a class approved lifting tool for three different load configurations and optimized to respect all dimensional and weight limitations.
We would like to thank TechnipFMC for the constructive collaboration during the project execution and for entrusting De Pretto Industrie with the development of such a key element for their offshore operations.
We are looking forward to seeing the new Lowering Link in action, and putting our expertise in developing customized solutions for offshore applications to work in the next project.
