Product Handling and Transpooling

From SURF to coiled tubing, steel umbilicals, cables and more

Thanks to years of transpooling experience, MDL has the know-how and the PM&E expertise in-house to optimise product handling on land: to preserve it, prepare it for deployment or dispose of it.

From the only classification society-verified equipment on the market, to the most experienced operators in the flexlay business, topped off with expert advice helping you win projects and secure competitive advantage.

That's top performance, tailor-made for each individual mission.


Tailored approach

With a wide selection of proven product handling equipment within our portable range, we will tailor the package to your transpooling needs and product requirements, be it SURF, coiled tubing, steel tube umbilicals, mooring lines, or cables.  Choose MDL transpooling services to securely spool your flexible product from a transportation or storage reel to the installation reel.


Flexible technology

The flexible design of MDL transpooling equipment lets you reap the benefits of even shorter mobilisation and demobilisation times. As well as combining road transportability and modular system design, you can minimise the time spent to reassemble the kit on the quayside before your transpooling operation can begin.


Single sourcing

By combining our Asset Maintenance & Engineering ability with market-leading SURF handling equipment, MDL can supply a turnkey transpooling package: from initial planning, through procedures and analysis, to commissioning and execution. This gives you a single point of contact for the entire project, on top of a comprehensive and cost-efficient package for any product transpooling scope.
