Deep Down Successfully Completes Carousel Rental Project

Houston, Texas, UNITED STATES

HOUSTON, Aug. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deep Down, Inc. (OTCQB: DPDW) ("Deep Down"), a specialist in offshore energy production control equipment and services, today announced the successful completion of a previously announced project for the rental of its 3,500 metric ton carousel and associated umbilical spooling services.

The project included the mounting and sea-fastening of Deep Down’s carousel onto a customer-provided barge, trans-spooling of three umbilicals totaling 93,600 meters in length from an umbilical manufacturer’s facility onto the barge-mounted carousel, transportation of the fully loaded carousel to a secondary spool base, and the subsequent trans-spooling of the umbilicals from the barge-mounted carousel to an installation vessel’s carousels. Deep Down also engineered and manufactured structures for securing each of the umbilical terminations during the spooling and transit operations.

“Completing a job of this magnitude with no personnel injuries, no damage to the customer’s products, and no impact to the environment is a testament to our team’s umbilical and cable management expertise,” said Charles Njuguna, President and CEO of Deep Down, Inc. “Even when the client requested an expedited vessel sail date, our team exhibited the knowledge and creativity to increase the spooling efficiency of our equipment while in the field in order to accommodate this request.”

“Such success would not have been possible without strong collaboration between all parties involved, especially with our customer who is serving as the installation contractor for the project. We look forward to continuing our long and fruitful relationships with the companies we worked with during this project and to providing support for their future umbilical and cable management needs,” Mr. Njuguna added.
