CRP Subsea awarded several deepwater contracts to provide buoyancy solutions in Brazil

CRP Subsea has recently been awarded several deepwater contracts to provide Distributed Buoyancy Modules in Brazil.

CRP Subsea’s Distributed Buoyancy Modules will be used to reduce top tension by maintaining a lazy wave configuration of the pipeline, thus reducing the risk of pipeline failure and increasing the lifetime of the field. CRP Subsea’s market-leading internal clamp technology continues to be the solution of choice to ensure risk free installation and operation for deepwater flexible riser operations.

Paul Louvain-Walters, Business Group Director at CRP Subsea states: “These awards continue to build on our recent contracts and collaboration with a key customer, extending our market-leading track record and internal clamp capacity. We are delighted to have been chosen to supply buoyancy for these projects and welcome the opportunity to continue our successful relationship.

Manufactured at CRP Subsea’s state-of-the-art-manufacturing facility in the North West of England, delivery has already commenced, with completion due later this year.

Distributed Buoyancy Modules (DBMs) are typically used between structures and a surface vessel or platform, providing uplift generated by a two-part buoyancy element and a clamp. CRP Subsea’s unique clamping solution allows DBMs to be securely attached at any point along the length of a rigid or flexible pipeline or cable.
