“Subsea 7 selected Motive Offshore to assist with one of the most critical wire spooling jobs Subsea 7 have completed to date.
Motive Offshore provided 2 x 300T capacity spooling winches, level wind systems, clump weights, NDT base trace equipment, together with a team of 28 skilled technicians.
It was especially gratifying to see how well the teams from Motive Offshore and Subsea 7 pulled together to complete the project on time.”

“Project hired equipment, including 10Te, 20Te, 75Te and 200Te winches for various vessels and various offshore campaigns. Equipment performed particularly well and offshore technical operators were always above standard.
Onshore support, from quote, to FAT and right through to final demobilisation, was always very professional.
From an engineering point of view, Motive are high on our preferred suppliers list, offering a good choice of hire equipment in what was formerly a tight market place and we would have no doubts in recommending them.”
Saipem, Sonsub Division
“Marine Power Systems selected Motive Offshore to supply bespoke subsea hydraulic winches for their WaveSub Wave energy converter.
Motive were very supportive of the R&D nature of the project and worked closely with Marine Power Systems to ensure that the winches supplied for the WaveSub were suitable for the demanding requirements for the novel renewable energy device.”
