Parkburn Precision Handling Systems is a quality, worldwide bespoke systems provider purpose built and mobile seismic handling systems.

Having acquired the complete design back catalogue and IPR of the specialist seismic handling systems supplier Marine Project Development Ltd (MPD) MPD logo in 2002, Parkburn entered the niche seismic / oceanographic / survey market, providing systems and equipment for owners and operators in oil and gas and general exploration and survey markets.

This type of marine deployment and retrieval system fitted perfectly with Parkburn’s extensive specialist marine experience and so proved a simple extension of Parkburn’s supply capability and product portfolio.

Parkburn’s drive to produce simple yet robust, flexible and easily mobilised systems can be demonstrated across the full range of streamer, umbilical, OBC, vane and fibre and steel wire rope and float handling requirements.

Parkburn seismic handling systems and equipment are today predominantly electrically driven and digitally controlled, which provide the operator unparalleled speed and tension control and automation features with the inherent reliability of electric motors and drives, not to mention the reduced installation costs and time.
