Red Marine Load Test System for Skandi Africa

pokit_d0cffa36e832b65fe145a6e9360bda83Red Marine has recently delivered a high capacity Load Test System to Technip for the periodic load testing of the pipelay system onboard the Skandi Africa.

The vessel has been specifically designed for pipelaying in harsh environments and in water depths of up to 3,000m.

The Load Test System allows all key pipelay system elements to be load tested with a single, purpose built tool.

This is the fifth pipelay load test system Red Marine has supplied to Technip.

The Technip system was designed, manufactured, assembled and fully tested by the Red Marine team in only 14 weeks.

Providing a test load of up to 850 tonnes, the system has already been used to complete the acceptance testing of the Skandi Africa pipelay system prior to the vessel beginning operations.
