TUBACEX will deliver Aker Solutions AS a total of 1,000 km of umbilical offshore tubes to be installed for three projects in the North Sea. The aim of this important agreement is to manufacture tubes that are used to control production equipment on the seabed and for the injection of fluids or corrosion inhibitors. This type of equipment is an extremely demanding technical solution, given its control function of the facilities and equipment on the seabed. Supply of the tubes is essentially carried out by welding tubes in coils, following the most demanding non-destructive tests and X-ray tests.
Engineering teams from both firms have collaborated in finding optimal technological solutions. TUBACEX will manufacture these offshore umbilical tubes at its production facilities located in Spain and Austria, with deliveries scheduled in 2023 & 2024, respectively.
