Red Marine’s load test system for ‘Skandi Africa’

Red Marine has recently delivered a high capacity load test system to Technip for the periodic load testing of the pipelay system onboard the subsea construction vessel Skandi Africa.

The vessel has been specifically designed for pipelaying in harsh environments and in water depths of up to 3,000m.

In February 2014, French Technip chartered the vessel on a long-term basis from DOF Subsea. According to Marine Traffic data, the vessel is currently moored in Rotterdam.

Red Marine explains that the load test system allows all key pipelay system elements to be load tested with a single, purpose-built tool. According to Red Marine, this helps reduce the time required to complete static overload testing prior to first operations and throughout the life of a pipelay system.

“This is the fifth pipelay load test system we have supplied to a leading global subsea contractor. In the current oil and gas climate, our clients are focussed on finding ways to increase operational safety whilst also saving time and reducing costs. The Red Marine Load Test System does exactly that,” the company has said in its press release.

Red Marine added that the Technip system was designed, manufactured, assembled and fully tested by the Red Marine team in 14 weeks.
