On board a 330 metre long pipe-laying vessel, pipelines were blasted in preparation for their struggle against sea water. A unique form of collaboration between Straaltechniek International and our client resulted in an innovative blasting installation for offshore purposes.
Our client is a leading, globally operating enterprise. The company designs and produces pipelines for the oil & gas industry, with expertise in deep waters. In close collaboration with the project team, we developed an installation for the dust-free blasting of pipelines both on board and at sea.
Pipe sections are supplied by ship and subsequently taken on board the pipe-laying vessel. Here they are blasted, welded, blasted again and coated. Then the entire pipeline is sunk from the stern of the vessel. Our blasting units form a crucial step in this process. Their quality has amply proved its worth because we have now supplied this enterprise with more than 30 units for several vessels.
In this way Straaltechniek contributes to innovative solutions in global energy supplies.
