    STR adds Taut Wire to its inventory

    Company News // September 18, 2015

    Subsea Technology & Rentals Ltd (STR) has announced the addition of SMT’s lightweight Taut Wire to its equipment sales and rental inventory. STR have signed an exclusive sales agency agreement to promote and sell SMT Taut Wire product globally.

    Key benefits of this environmentally friendly system include, its vertical height when stowed, the very small hydraulic power pack used to raise and lower the boom arm into position and the fact that only three small cables are required for installation into the vessel’s dynamic positioning system (plus two power cables between the power supplies and taut wire). 

    Compared to other systems on the market these benefits significantly reduce installation time and cost, footprint on deck and shipping costs, said STR.
