The order which is one of the largest of its type in the world is to provide 5 ROV installed Structural Pipeline Repair Clamps which will form part of an Emergency Pipeline Repair Systems (EPRS) supporting pipelines off the North and Northwest 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: 20” and 44”. The project is a significant award for the company and follows on from a successful 2015 which delivered a record turnover of over £11m. The designs will be tested to DNV pipeline tolerances at up to 328 bar.g and are suitable for operating temperatures ranging from 0 – 75°C. The design and build process will be monitored and certified to the exacting standards of the internationally recognized 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 16” 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, USA, 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”.

Subsea Innovation will deliver the project from its recently built headquarters, Innovation House, ideally situated on the Faverdale Industrial Estate near Darlington, which provides excellent transport links by road, rail and air. The office building and 40,000 ft2 manufacturing facility, originally opened in November 2014 by HRH The Duke of Gloucester, boasts world class facilities for a business of this type which includes manufacturing bays serviced by overhead cranes of up to 60 tonnes, on site machining, a PU manufacturing facility and a floodable test pit to provide indoor wet testing of subsea systems.
