Seanamic Group Expands Umbilicals Business

Surface to seabed specialist, Seanamic Group, announced Wednesday that it is expanding its umbilical business with a new Umbilical International facility in Glasgow.

Comprising Houston-based Umbilicals International (UI) and Glasgow-based Caley Ocean Systems, Seanamic supplies fully integrated umbilical and handling systems for well intervention, workover and BOP, saturation diving and subsea habitats, ROVs and submersibles. Initially, the new facility will offer umbilical repair and refurbishment for operators and contractors, in the lead up to full umbilical and cable manufacture.

Alasdair MacDonald, Seanamic Group CEO, commented in a company statement:

“The decision to expand the Umbilicals International business was prompted by the growing demand for dive umbilicals with a number of recent new contracts for our integrated dive handling systems.”

David Henderson, business development manager at Seanamic, said in a company release:

“Although many companies talk about designing and building an integrated system, only Seanamic is 100 percent in-house. Its value lies in the depth of design experience with umbilical and LARS systems. This translates into de-risking the project both commercially and technically, enabling customers to sidestep integration issues – reducing project risk and cost.”
