STRUCTURAL STRENGTHENING

 

Introduction

The number of ageing offshore platforms has increased globally and a substantial number are facing operation beyond their intended design life.

Strengthening of offshore structures may be required for a number of reasons, e.g. additional loading or corrosion or structural damage of existing structures.

In the current climate of cost and resource pressures, we are able to offer a highly cost effective and robust engineered solution to structural issues.

Application

Our Engineered Solution

Utilising our in house expertise in composite technology, the unique features of carbon fibre technology found in Technowrap™ SRS provides a viable, cost-effective solution for reinstating the original design integrity of steelwork over the replacement of structural components.

Key Benefits

Our Technowrap™ SRS system utilises the unique features of carbon fibre technology. It is less than one-quarter the weight of steel, which makes it 4 times as stiff on a weight to weight basis. It is approximately 4 times as strong in tension and it has a better fatigue life than steel, aluminium or titanium.

Other key benefits are:
