Suretank, First Subsea to transport new pipeline recovery tool
DUNLEER, Ireland -- Suretank has produced a specialised container for the transportation of a new range of pipeline recovery tools (PRT). The custom-built 20ft open top container has been specially fitted out to hold and transport the Hyperlast 101 Twin Sealing system from First Subsea.
Used to recover subsea flowline and gas export production pipelines to the surface, the twin polyurethane seals from First Subsea increase the PRT’s resilience and scope for long-term deployment in deepwater and ultra-deepwater.
Phil Day, proposals manager at First Subsea, said: "As operators go further offshore and to deeper water we have to develop our product range to meet these new requirements. An important factor in the development of any new product is the transportation. This is our first dedicated DNV 2.7-1 certified container for our increasing fleet of Pipe Recovery Tools and we' ve been extremely impressed with the level of expertise that Suretank has demonstrated."
