The equipment is designed to be installed topside during the installation of a new platform and prevent sea water ingress into the J-Tube until a pull-in operation is required at each location. At that point the Seals would be removed by Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Each Seal Assembly was successfully subjected to a differential test pressure of 21.9 bar.g witnessed by client representatives.
Gordon Conlon, Director at Supergrip said, “This is another example of our capability with regards to subsea sealing applications. During the past year we have delivered in excess of 50 systems with many being of a bespoke design. On this particular project, our engineering team had a number of challenges to overcome. As with all of our contracts we liaised closely with our client to obtain the optimum solution as well as providing formal project management reporting and complete documentation packages.”
Darren Blackburn, Director at Supergrip said, “This has been another great project for us to work on. As well as providing high quality equipment to our clients satisfaction, we have also built an excellent working relationship with our client that has lead to another contract award for 2020.”
