MDL’s in-house talent spans across all project delivery stages, providing assistance at every step: from tendering, through execution, to successful completion.


Technical expertise

With specialisms including fabrication, machining, hydraulic, electrical and software engineering, the MDL technical team are the backbone of every project. They enable complete in-house equipment delivery, as well as onshore and offshore services for project execution. They also assist with troubleshooting on equipment and projects, including remote support or on location at the client facility.

  • Mobilisation / demobilisation services: quayside support, vessel preparation and clean-up, sea-fastening execution

Equipment operators

All of MDL equipment operators are specialist technicians with expert knowledge of hydraulic or electric systems and software. Before joining the offshore crew, they undertake internal development through the delivery, maintenance and upgrades of MDL fleet, which means they become intimate with the equipment inside-out.

Thanks to their skillset and experience on global flexlay projects, they are an invaluable asset on any project.

  • Experienced in equipment manufacture, commissioning, integration and operation
  • Global track-record of operating MDL and third-party flex lay equipment

Project Management & Engineering

Every MDL project starts with a dedicated Project Manager, appointed to oversee the complete delivery. They are the constant point of contact between the client and MDL, and are in daily communications with the offshore personnel to ensure safe and timely execution.

MDL Engineering expertise supports the project PM, identifying the most efficient approaches to equipment mobilisation, integration with client and third-party assets and demobilisation, as well as troubleshooting at any stage of the execution scope.
