Delmar Systems and Maritime Developments (MDL) have formed a joint partnership to launch LiveWire, a solution for wire rope inspection and change-out services. LiveWire will cut time and operational expenditures for wire rope handling, maintenance and inspection for large diameter wire ropes.
LiveWire will be based at Delmar’s Port Fourchon, La, facility and will support the Gulf of Mexico’s offshore crane and winch market, including floating production platforms, drilling rigs and construction vessels. The system will be suitable for both onshore and offshore operations, depending on customer requirements.
Mark Williamson, MDL AMS President, said, “We are excited to be working with Delmar Systems on LiveWire, the second phase of our partnership, which already features a flex-lay base in Fourchon. By combining MDL’s 20 plus years of experience of developing back-deck solutions and Delmar’s 50 plus years of handling and installing mooring systems, we were able to develop LiveWire and redefine the traditional solution for handling large diameter wire ropes.”
Matt Smith, Delmar’s VP of Operations, said, “The industry need for proper material handling in an efficient and cost-effective manner led us to the solution at hand. Delmar working with MDL to provide a technically superior product and overall service will undoubtedly change the asset owner’s perspective on deepwater crane maintenance and operations. Delmar’s implementation and support service for large-diameter long wire rope inspection, installation and service is a natural extension of our mooring methodologies and core business.”
