Cable/pipeline protection

Cable and pipeline protection ans counter measures of pipeline floating

In the offshore sector, there is always the possibility that cables and pipelines are damaged by objects falling from platforms or ships (such as scaffold poles, anchors, etc.). The consequences can be fatal. Filter Units are a proven solution to provide proper protection.

The single-lifting point enables a fast and safe installation; it also facilitates a decommissioning after many years. Positioning can be done by ROV, diver or other position determining technologies.

The big advantage: Filter Units can be easily removed after the end of the cable life time or in case of a malfunction they can be removed and reinstalled again. Studies by offshore experts have shown that due to their flexibility, Filter Units reduce pressure on the submarine cable during and after installation, thus virtually eliminating the risk of damage.

CREATION OF CABLE AND PIPELINE CROSSING

The growth of projects such as offshore wind farms, tidal power plants and wave power plants will continue to grow strongly, thus increasing the need for intersection solutions. With the increasingly complex network of piping and cables, many pipelines or cables must cross the installations of other operators. Often there is a legal requirement, a minimum distance, when a new cable or pipeline is routed over an existing pipeline or cable. Filter Units provide a reliable and very simple solution.

The minimum distance is guaranteed and the intersection additionally stabilized.
