Quayside Fabrication has designed a subsea basket that can be stacked and secured on a vessel while at sea. The newly named ‘Stackable at Sea’ subsea baskets can save valuable deck space and can result in fewer trips to sea for oil companies.

The subsea baskets have been designed specifically to withstand movement on board a vessel in rough seas.  The new features incorporate four bumper posts, which act as an aid to stabilize baskets during maneuvers and prevent movement and damage.  Once stacked, a special locking mechanism is fixed to secure the baskets in place.  

“We have been working on this new design of subsea baskets for over six months and we are delighted that we have come up with a solution that works perfectly,” said David Duncan, director at Quayside Fabrication.  

The Stackable at Sea subsea baskets are now available for hire in the UK. Quayside Fabrications is based in Colpy, Aberdeenshire and specializes in structural steelwork and fabrication services for the oil and gas industry.
