CRP Subsea awarded a large flowline protection contract for an offshore gas development in China
CRP Subsea has recently been awarded another large contract to supply 1,600 metres of Tri-Strakes® (Vortex Induced Vibration strakes), in various sizes, for an offshore gas development in China, after successful previous supply.
CRP Subsea’s Tri-Strakes® have a proven track record of being able to accommodate high installation loads encountered during S-lay or J-lay, which was a key specification of this project. CRP Subsea’s innovative manufacturing process means that the Tri-Strakes® can be produced faster than systems manufactured using traditional techniques, ensuring the strict delivery schedule can be met.
Ben Stubbens, Sales Team Manager at CRP Subsea states: “This award is another positive step in our ever-growing worldwide reputation, helping to strengthen our position as a market leader in the supply of subsea ancillaries for critical applications in demanding environments.”
Engineering works are due to commence at CRP Subsea’s World Class production facility in the North West of England this year, with completion and installation in early 2023.
Tri-Strakes® are a vital riser and pipeline ancillary in free spans, where current cross flows can cause Vortex Induced Vibration (VIV), in turn causing fatigue failure of the pipeline or its connections. Tri-Strakes® have the benefits of traditional cable and flowline impact and abrasion protection, with a helical profile for effective VIV suppression, thus protecting the pipelines from future failure and prolonging their lifespan.
