Unique Pipework Replacement Project for Maersk

The project utilizes GS-Hydro’s newly developed replacement solution.

GS-Hydro has completed, through our Aberdeen, UK facility, a major pipework replacement project on Maersk Oil’s Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Vessel, GPIII. The project, the first to fully utilize GS-Hydro’s newly developed replacement solution included all the existing pipework and system components on the GPIII’s Turret Bearing Control System (TBCS).

What made the project unique was that the TBCS, one of the vessel’s most important and safety-critical systems, was kept ‘live’ and fully operational throughout the offshore period of the project.

Through the utilization of GS-Hydro’s non-welded technology and ‘cold-work’ capability the pipework could be replaced with the system fully functioning and with virtually no interruption to production or the vessel’s operational capability.
