MDL Reel Drive Systems

Third Generation RDS

Performance Features

  • Slim base and integrated HPU reduce system’s footprint and increase free space on deck
  • Cradles integrated into the tracks reduce reel mobilisation time for every reel on board, resulting in shorter port calls
  • Reel lashing points built into each track reduce sea fastening onto the deck
  • Cradle packers allow for different diameter reels to be handled on a single built-in grillage
  • Fully automated remote operation and integration of systems mean no long cables and hoses on deck, minimising operational hazards
  • Tower units with integrated skidding cylinders mean shorter tracks requiring less deck space allowing for a smaller vessel or more product to be carried on board
