Validates thr subsea pipeline welds and geometric features e.g. coatings/liners to demonstrate their ability to survive multiple reeling and straightening cycles as experienced during deployment.
This work is carried out at our in-house test facility supported by a multi-disciplined engineering team with capabilities including fabrication, machining, advanced NDT, closed loop control and instrumentation.
