Uraduct® Buoyant

Uraduct® Buoyant

Demand is growing for highly advanced cable and flowline protection, as the global requirement for data and product transfer, through ever harsher environments.

When these lines cross over each other on the seafloor, there is a potential risk of damage to the previously laid power cables or flowlines.

Uraduct® Buoyant is a protection system for subsea cables, umbilicals, flowlines and hoses.

Based on the original Uraduct® design, Uraduct® Buoyant not only protects cables from abrasion and impact, but also reduces the excess weight of a subsea cable so that it will not crush other lines at crossing locations. Made from highly buoyant materials, Uraduct® Buoyant minimises drag and lift, avoiding possible stability issues.

Uraduct® Buoyant is a suitable alternative to subsea crossing bridges and can be installed on the cable or pipeline before it is laid on the seabed.
