Subsea Innovation Ltd, part of Tekmar Group plc, has announced a contract win with TechnipFMC in Norway, building the company’s market presence in the region. 

In 2018 Subsea Innovation developed a next-generation seal for their Pipe in Pipe Waterstops. Waterstop Seals provide a solution for isolating a section of flooded annulus in offshore risers or flowlines by preventing water passage to the adjacent Pipe-In-Pipe sections during installation and normal operation. The new design addresses potential challenges experienced with High Frequency Welded (HFW) pipes and seam welded pipes being introduced within the industry as part of cost-saving measures. 

Subsea Innovation are one of the only suppliers in the world to have successfully tested Waterstop seals with a proven recorded 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 contract win demonstrates the global demand for the next-generation seal.

The product was designed and developed from Subsea Innovation’s head office in Darlington.

Dave Thompson, Managing Director of Subsea Innovation, said: “Norway is a major market for us. Winning this project is recognition of the hard work of the team who develop equipment for the world’s most challenging environments for the world’s biggest customers.” 

Subsea Innovation is a global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of complex engineered equipment and technology used in the offshore energy market. Subsea Innovation Limited are one of Tekmar Group plc’s four primary operating companies; in addition to Tekmar Energy Limited, AgileTek Engineering Limited and Ryder Geotechnical Ltd.

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, have successfully designed, manufactured, tested and delivered two diver installed 10” pipeline repair clamps, delivered to a major international client in less than 10 weeks.

The clamps were designed in accordance with Subsea Innovation’s recently acquired DNV GL Type Approval for temporary and permanent structural repair clamps. Subsea Innovation’s DNV GL Type Approval applies for carbon steel pipelines between 8” and 44” and temperature ranges from -4 to +80oC, providing new capability in the global pipeline market.

The clamps were designed and constructed in under 10 weeks during the period of December 2018 to February 2019. At over 3m long and 15Te each, this project was a major undertaking for both Subsea Innovation and the supply chain.

Dave Thompson, Managing Director at Subsea Innovation, said: “I am extremely happy with the result as it shows what the team here can do. We worked very closely with the client with who we have a longstanding relationship, to deliver a cost effective and trusted solution to the problem.”

Emergency Pipeline Repair Systems (EPRS) are designed for fast deployment should a subsea oil or gas pipeline become damaged or its integrity found to deficient due to corrosion or defect.

Mr Thompson continued: “Fast turnarounds are often needed for these type of projects and we at Subsea Innovation are in a strong position to help our clients achieve this.”

Subsea Innovation intend to invest further in this product to reduce lead times and increase our responsiveness, supporting their global client base.

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

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.
