Delivery of HLS to Bibby Offshore
Posted: 06/05/14

PDi is pleased to announce the successful delivery of a 75Te Horizontal Lay System (HLS) to Bibby Offshore on the 7th March 2014.

The hand-over of the HLS was the culmination of a 16 week fabrication, commissioning and testing scope that was completed on Smith’s Embankment Quay, Peterhead to prepare the HLS for mobilisation onto the Olympic Ares. 

The HLS was based on an existing PDi design which was modified to meet Bibby Offshore’s operational requirements. PDi provided the project management, structural engineering and drafting support to facilitate these changes. 

In addition PDi project managed the fabrication subcontractor, Dales Engineering Services Ltd, who also provided plant and personnel for the quayside assembly & testing activities.

Murray Scott, PDi Project Manager commented; “The safe delivery of the HLS to the quayside to become a long term Bibby asset was a challenging project that was achieved with close communication and cooperation between all parties. This project further emphasises one of PDi’s core capabilities; the design, development and delivery of lay system equipment to the offshore oil & gas industry. ”
