ShawCor Ltd. announced its pipecoating division, Bredero Shaw, has received a significant contract from Technip USA, to provide Concrete Weight Coatings, anode installation and other related services for a Latin American pipeline project.
The project will consist of approximately 100 km of 36” pipe to be installed offshore for the transportation of natural gas. Bredero Shaw will mobilize two Compression Coat Technology (CCT) concrete weight coating plants to La Brea, Trinidad for this project. Initial operations are scheduled to commence during the first quarter of 2012 with concrete coating scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2012.
Bredero Shaw’s CCT concrete coatings are the pipeline industry’s leading coating system for projects requiring rapid mobilization or the supply of concrete coatings near the pipeline right-of-way. CCT concrete coating systems are designed to provide negative buoyancy and mechanical protection for pipelines in submarine environments, wet environments or rocky and rough terrain configurations.
Compression Coat uses a side-wrap application process, making it ideal for both small and large diameter pipelines.
