DMT Emerald installs suction pile, manifold and treeProjects and Operations // September 7, 2009
Deep Marine Technology’s DMT Emerald has successfully installed a purpose-built suction pile, subsea manifold, and tree for a major oil company utilizing its 100 tonne multi-purpose tower.
The suction pile, over 35ft tall and 15ft in diameter, was successfully over boarded in 4ft to 6ft seas and installed in under 12 hours.
The pile was landed at the desired location in 5,000ft of water, and completed in 66 per cent of the allotted time given by the client.
DMT Emerald's crew also installed a manifold and set a tree. The manifold, weighing over 35 tonnes, was successfully installed onto the suction pile ahead of schedule and without any issues.
The tree, weighing approximately 48 tonnes and measuring 15ft x 15ft x 20ft was set via keel haul transferred to the multi-purpose tower. It was set in approximately 10 hours from water to landed, ahead of client expectations.
