Subsea Innovation Achieve World First DNV GL Type Approval

More...

 DX 1439 small

Subsea Innovation Ltd, part of Tekmar Group plc, has announced that it has been awarded DNV GL type approval for its SIClamp structural pipeline repair clamp technology. In doing so Subsea Innovation is the first manufacturer in the world to achieve this certification.

The new technology, given the official stamp of approval from DNV GL, can act as a temporary or permanent structural repair clamp for carbon steel pipelines designed for water, oil or gas transport. Emergency Pipeline Repair Systems (EPRS) such as these are designed for immediate deployment should a subsea oil or gas pipeline become damaged or its integrity found to deficient due to corrosion or defect.

Subsea Innovation is a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of complex engineered equipment and technology used in the offshore energy market.

Designed for sizes between 8” and 44” and temperature ranges from -4 to +80oC, the SIClamps provide new capability in the global pipeline market, which is a great growth opportunity for the Darlington based company.

The technology was developed for operational offshore oil and gas platforms who have had their working life extended and pipelines are required to last longer. With the increase in working life, Emergency Pipeline Repair Systems support this by maximising operational life and production efficiency and can be deployed at short notice.

Dave Thompson, Managing Director at Subsea Innovation, said: “Achieving this certification is a major achievement and reflects the technical expertise of the team and many years of hard work. The technology helps solve a major problem for oil and gas operators, tier 1 and tier 2 contractors to protect against leaks or structural integrity on the huge amount critical infrastructure which crisscross the globe.”

Subsea Innovation have delivered nine such systems in the last two years which enabled the company to apply for the DNV GL type approval. Of these nine systems, five are fully Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) automated, utilising Subsea Innovations in-house designed hydraulic reversible bolt tensioners, which allows for installation and operational in deep water down to 1350m. The company is currently developing systems for even deeper water, supporting global demand, with a previous prestigious client list including Subsea7, RasGas, Chevron and Impex.

Subsea Innovation has also been successful in providing fast turn-around clamps in under 10 weeks, but still designed in accordance with the type approval, including all the benefits of the SI duel seal single circuit technology.

Mr Thompson continued “Our modular approach to the design is also unique in the industry and can provide significant cost benefits to the end client. This includes the ability for shared components between clamps and connectors and multiple seal sets allowing them to cover various pipe sizes and the modularity of our installation tooling.”

Subsea Innovation aim to become the global market leader for Emergency Pipeline Repair Systems.

Subsea Innovation Limited are one of Tekmar Group plc’s three primary operating companies; in addition to Tekmar Energy Limited and AgileTek Engineering Limited.

Tekmar Group’s vision is to become the partner of choice for the supply and installation support of subsea protection equipment to the global offshore energy markets.

Subsea Innovation Ltd, part of Tekmar Group plc, has announced two high profile contract wins with Royal IHC, as part of a collaborative framework agreement.

Subsea Innovation is a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of complex engineered equipment and technology used in the offshore energy market.

Subsea Innovation will be supporting their client Royal IHC Limited on the design, development, manufacture and supply of back deck equipment on two projects to be completed throughout 2018 and 2019. For both projects, which include a reel lay project and a J lay project, Subsea Innovation will be producing a range of back deck equipment including Pipeline End Termination (PLET) manipulators, skids and workstations from concept through to delivery.

Dave Thompson, Managing Director at Subsea Innovation, said: “We have an excellent relationship with Royal IHC and our teams work extremely closely together. Taking a concept from a blank sheet of paper through to full fabrication, test and delivery is hugely exciting.”

Both projects will be designed from Subsea Innovation’s head office in Darlington; working in collaboration with Royal IHC Limited teams based in the UK and Netherlands.

In August 2018 Subsea Innovation was acquired by Tekmar Group plc.

James Ritchie, CEO at Tekmar Group plc, said: “When we added Subsea Innovation into the Tekmar Group we knew this brought new capabilities, markets and strong cross selling opportunities to the Tekmar Group; but we also knew their engineering team are very highly regarded and these two contracts really demonstrate this.”

Subsea Innovation Limited is one of Tekmar Group plc’s three primary operating companies; in addition to Tekmar Energy Limited and AgileTek Engineering Limited.

Tekmar Group’s vision is to become the partner of choice for the supply and installation support of subsea protection equipment to the global offshore energy markets.

Subsea Innovation host Sir Michael Fallon to discuss UK offshore wind

Former Energy Minister Rt Hon Sir Michael Fallon MP has told a group of offshore wind supply chain companies the introduction of a Local Content Commissioner would help champion British industry in the sector.

Speaking at an event held at Subsea Innovation, part of Tekmar Group plc, in Darlington, Mr Fallon updated members of the North East of England offshore wind supply chain on the feedback and reaction to his report, ‘Winning Locally, Going Global’, from the industry and politicians.

In the report, which was commissioned by Wilton Engineering, Mr Fallon made a number of headline recommendations, including a new 60 percent target for UK content for offshore wind projects in British waters.

Sir Michael also concluded that expenditure on each wind farm development should be reported in a more transparent way that includes added-value in both jobs and local skills.

Since the report was published earlier this year, several recommendations have been progressed by government, most notably the need for a confirmed timetable for future licences and Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction rounds, which was announced by Energy Minister Claire Perry in July.

In addition to updating invited guests on the reaction to the report and its conclusions, Sir Michael also discussed the creation of a Local Content Commissioner to monitor and support UK industry in the application of the 60 percent target.

Sir Michael Fallon said: “Where I think there is more agreement is the need for better reporting of UK content, more transparency and external verification, which I hope will form part of the Sector Deal.

“But even if it is, it may not offer sufficient reassurance if the next Contract for Difference (CfD) auction turns out to be the most intense yet, with bid prices falling still further.

“There is a danger, therefore, that while the consumer will certainly benefit, British companies may lose out. So, I am attracted by the proposal for Local Supply Chain Commissioners who can properly champion local businesses in the supply chain and help monitor market entry for new SMEs.

“Local Commissioners need not bring another layer of regulation or bureaucracy. We already have equivalent commissioners for small businesses, for supermarkets and pub tenancies.

“They would enable companies in the supply chain to feel they had a referee, and one on the local pitch; developers might then be more cautious about brushing aside local tenders.”

Pierre Boyde, Managing Director Cable Installation & Trenching, DeepOcean, said: “Sir Michael’s report has highlighted the key issues facing the supply chain and delivered some positive proposals that can make a very real difference to the role British companies play in the offshore wind industry. This includes the Local Content Commissioner, which is a great idea that needs further exploration and discussion that we are keen to be part of.”

Subsea Innovation announces major contract win with Subsea 7

More...

 

 

Subsea Innovation Ltd, part of Tekmar Group plc, has announced a major contract win with Subea7.

Subsea Innovation is a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of complex engineered equipment and technology used in the offshore energy market.

Subsea Innovation recently developed a next-generation seal for their Pipe in Pipe Waterstops, designed to deal with issues experienced when using High Frequency Welded (HFW) pipes and seam welded pipes which are being introduced within the industry as part of cost-saving measures.

Subsea Innovation are the only supplier in the world to have successfully tested Waterstop seals with a proven record on HFW and seam welded pipes. HFW or seam welded pipes often require localised polishing to improve the sealing ability; whereas Subsea Innovation’s next-generation SIStop® Waterstop Seal eliminates the need for this, sealing on pipes with greater surface defects and impurities.

The next-generation seals were designed and developed from Subsea Innovation’s head office in Darlington.

Following the announcement, the new SIStop® Waterstop Seal will be used on two Norwegian projects including the Skogul project for Aker BP and the Wintershall Nova project.

Dave Thompson, Managing Director of Subsea Innovation, said: “Winning these projects for a client as prestigious as Subsea 7 is recognition of the hard work of the team.”

Subsea Innovation Limited are one of Tekmar Group plc’s three primary operating companies; in addition to Tekmar Energy Limited and AgileTek Engineering Limited.

Subsea Innovation products range from large equipment handling systems which operate on the back of installation vessels, pipeline repair clamps which protect major oil and gas pipelines, and equipment for the construction of offshore oil and gas projects. The business also has an engineering design team who develop world-leading concepts for some of the world’s most challenging environments.

What are Waterstops and Pipe In Pipe (PIP) systems?

Pipe In Pipe systems are two concentric pipes often consisting an inner pipe or flowline, and an outer pipe or carrier pipe. Centralisers are placed between the carrier pipe and flowline to keep the flowline centered, minimising contact with the environment, therefore reducing the amount of insulation required. The annulus between the two pipes can be filled with air or a passive thermal insulation to reduce heat loss. Waterstop Seals provide a solution for isolating a section of flooded annulus by preventing water passage to the adjacent Pipe-In-Pipe sections during installation and normal operation.
