Deep Down has just completed the assembly and test running of its own 3,200 MT carousel located at Core Industries near Mobile, Alabama and has recently been awarded two more large carousel contracts in excess of $8 million. Deep Down is presently under full construction of a 3,000 MT onshore carousel system with a delivery date at the end of the third quarter 2011 for one of the world’s leading umbilical manufacturers.
The 2nd carousel awarded, a 3,500 MT offshore system will be DNV certified and will be completed in the first quarter of 2012 for an international installation contractor. As an extra bonus, Deep Down has just undergone and passed several audits by our clients and safety organizations supporting the safety, and quality of our company and the upcoming construction of the carousels. Both carousels will be manufactured in Channelview, Texas, then placed on a barge and assembled for our clients in Mobile, Alabama.
Ronald E. Smith, Chief Executive Officer stated, "We have always had innovative approaches to handling terminations, transporting and putting umbilicals into the water. This award winning carousel system, as described in the Deep Down news release on May 18, 2011 is exciting and its compact nature allows our clients to place a large amount of product on an optimum foot print which opens the doors for both onshore and offshore applications. We believe these orders will have a significant impact on the Company’s future growth. We have several more systems quoted where the delivery schedules are ideal."
