Reel drive systems are used for spooling and unspooling of rigid and flexible pipe, umbilicals, risers and other products for offshore applications, stored on multiple vertical reels.
The Huisman reel drive system consists of two drive/lifting towers that lift the reel from its cradle for spooling. The towers can skid along two skid beams, skidding from one spooling position to the next. At this location it will pick up a reel for unspooling. The system can be built with a Wellstream, NKT or Coflexip reel interface.
