GS-Hydro’s non-welded piping solutions ensure safe, clean and leak-free piping systems for demanding marine applications.

Benefits for Marine

The GS-Piping System secures high integrity, cleanliness, fast installation times, minimized repair & replacement needs as well as flexible engineering. This translates into major time and cost benefits for shipyards and marine equipment suppliers as well as ship owners.

State-of-the-Art Engineering

GS-Hydro has over 30 years of experience in marine piping system engineering. We are able to offer complete engineering services which cover essentially everything from creating the specification for the piping to 3D-layout design, parts lists, stress analysis and documentation.

Time and Cost Savings

GS-Hydro’s piping solutions ensure a lower total installed system cost and shorter installation time when compared to traditional welded systems. There is also lower flushing time and costs. The GS-Piping Systems also require less repair and maintenance but when they are maintained, they require shorter down-time.

Most GS-Piping Systems are prefabricated which can save as much as 70% of the costly offshore installation not to mention that it ensures the high quality of the piping system. Thus the installation time and costs, as well as the overall costs are significantly lower when compared to a welded piping system.

Superior Technology

GS-Piping systems are made for demanding marine environments as they are leak-free and require no hot works. Due to the absence of welding, stress corrosion and fatigue fractures are completely avoided leading to a maximum piping lifetime. There is also no need for post-weld cleaning or costly inspections of the welds, such as X-raying. This also means that the GS-Piping System is environmentally friendly as no waste is created from acid cleaning.

GS-Piping Systems also ensures fewer interruptions in production. The superior cleanliness due to no hot works leads to a minimized need for maintenance, repair or replacement of equipment.
