Pipetech has launched a new Active Caisson Management service following a number of recent projects with North Sea operators.

Caissons are prone to damage from fatigue and erosion, which can lead to defects and wall failure resulting in a knock-on impact on production and safety, costing the industry millions of pounds every year.

Pipetech's Active Caisson Management solution aims to drive cost efficiencies, whilst maintaining asset integrity throughout the lifecycle of the caisson. It involves a single sourced, full range of services including inspection, cleaning, coating and planned and programmed maintenance and repair scheduling. The company has already delivered a number of caisson projects with Repsol Sinopec Resources UK, Statoil, Aker BP ASA and Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd.

Caisson failures have been recorded as the cause of numerous shutdowns, with structural failures leading to dropped objects. Clamp repairs are time consuming, expensive and in many cases can result in the defects occurring in new areas on the caisson. Pipetech's Active Caisson Management solution addresses wall thickness and defect issues with integrity in mind, significantly reducing the likelihood of failure.
