Replacement of a weakened steel sheet

replacement of a weakened steel sheet

Further to a previous detection and repairing of a piercing several months ago for one of our clients, we undertook thickness measures in the nearby zone which revealed a fragility and a need to change a steel sheet piece.
The zone being in a part of the hull with form, we created a template allowing to raise this form in the area where the cofferdam would be placed.
The operations ended after cleaning.

Another successfully executed operation by our teams. Contact us today and we will find solutions to your challenges.

Pipe repairing following a piercing

Further to the setting of the 4 anchor points on the zone following researches and the marking of the damaged zone that led to a piercing on the pipe, we set up the hoisting equipment using lifting bags and prepared the bottom zone of the pipe to install the trestles under the sound areas before cutting the damaged part.
The pipe cutting operations went on as planned (hydraulic saw set up, cutting, damaged part evacuation) et were followed by the manufacturing of the rail ends before setting up the 2 smart flanges, then metrology for a spool piece manufacturing.
The last day was dedicated to the cuff installation and the tightening of the set.

We thank our client for its trust and great feedback on this operation.

Benefit from our expertise and contact us to learn about the solutions we can provide to your business.

We continue our collaboration with Perenco Congo. In addition to our regular maintenance operations, our teams took care this month of an electric cable laying and a Flexstream pipe installation between two platforms.
The operation was divided in two phases:
- Structure installation to fix the cable and pipe from the surface down to -78m depth
- Releasing of the cable and the pipe
Thereafter, an electrician team tested the electric cable and the divers team performed a hydro and air test followed by a ROV survey on the pipe on the entire distance.
The Flexstream pipe was then set in his I-tubes and collars from the surface down to -60m depth on both platforms.

Our teams’ additional qualifications such as the IRATA are highly valued by our clients.
Therefore, when our divers are not in the waters, they can perform rope access operations: it is cost-effective for our clients as we can work on 2 different jobs with the same team.

Petrodive Cameroon and Perenco Cameroon are keeping up the good work together.
Operations are running smoothly and this month, we organized an emergency /safety exercise.
These type of tests are randomly run in all our bases and offshore as a reminder to our teams that safety comes first!
The exercise is a complete reproduction of what could happen in real emergency situations. It is implemented in accordance with our HSE policy and all the current international recommendations and standards.
