Home / Uncategorized / 14” Tie-in Spool Fabrication and Fast Landing Test



In the autumn of 2011, Udeco FMC awarded Udeco a contract for a fast landing test of a 14” full scale Ucon tie-in spool. The main scope was to design and develop a fast landing system for a 50Mt subsea tie-in spool and spreader lift. The scope also included the spool fabrication, lifting spreader fabrication, provision of all lift rigging, lifting system certification, fabrication of adjustable landing structures with guideposts, design and fabrication of a Ucon tooling test control panel and performance of the fast landing test. The achieved controlled landing speed for the 50mt spool and spreader was 0.74 m/s.
