The Company also specializes in turn key solutions in GRE pipes supplies, pre-fabrications, engineering designs, installations and commissioning.
Green specifications- 25% of the weight of traditional mild steel pipes, immune to corrosion
Reduction in weight of vessels equates to reduced fuel consumption
Free from maintenance and replacement requirements
Prefabrication of fittings means that the number of system joints can be minimised which will, in turn, reduce costs significantly.
By spooling the pipes and fittings, installation time onboard can be significantly reduced with the bonus that installation costs are also reduced. Typically 70% of the spools for a job are prefabricated in controlled conditions either in FPI facilities, in shipyards or at the workshops of our preferred contractors.
Spools will be tested before leaving our workshops to ensure the quality of our product. Additionally, prefabrication reduces the number of bonded joints, and hence reducing the use of chemicals onboard.
