Major Structural Pipeline Repair Clamp Order For Subsea Innovation

Subsea Innovation, one of the world leading subsea equipment suppliers with more than 25 years’ experience delivering projects into the offshore industry, has announced the securing of a multimillion pound order from engineering, construction and service experts Subsea 7 i-Tech Services.

The order which is one of the largest of its type in the world is to provide five ROV installed structural pipeline repair clamps, which will form part of an emergency pipeline repair systems (EPRS) supporting pipelines off the North and North-West coasts of Australia. The systems will act as contingency in the event that the main trunk lines transporting the gas need to be repaired.

The 5 systems cover pipes across a range of diameters between: 20in and 44in. The project is a significant award for the company and follows on from a successful 2015, which delivered a record turnover of more than £11m. The designs will be tested to DNV pipeline tolerances at up to 328bar/g and are suitable for operating temperatures ranging from 0°C to 75°C. The design and build process will be monitored and certified to the exacting standards of the internationally recognised body DNV.

In addition to clamps Subsea Innovation also offer a full range of structural pipeline connectors suitable for EPRS amongst other offshore tie in operations and have earlier this year delivered a pair of 16in connectors to RasGas in Qatar as part of another significant order. Past projects have seen these products successfully deployed off the coasts of the Middle East, the US, Europe and also in Trinidad.

Finance director Phil Heathcock said: "Securing this contract from Subsea 7 i-Tech Services demonstrates our capability to secure one of the largest EPRS orders available in the world and we look forward to working with our client and the operators to deliver this project on time, on spec and in budget."
