For the installation of the platform substructure and flowlines for the Angel gas field development, McDermott Industries required a powered hose reel capable of handling a variety of subsea hoses.
AME designed and fabricated a powered reel unit to support grouting, flowline flooding and hydro-testing operations.
The drive system consists of a piston-type pneumatic motor, high speed fail-safe brake and shaft mounted planetary gear reducer with torque arm. This robust system is safe, simple and easy to maintain in the field.
Multiple hoses with varied minimum bend radii can be stored on the reel through the installation and removal of circumferential drum struts.
