RED Engineering Delivers for TechnipFMC

RED Engineering said it has developed new clamp technology to improve subsea well intervention operations.

The two, first of a kind modular subsea clamps have been delivered to TechnipFMC for operation from the well intervention vessel, Island Constructor.

The modular design will allow TechnipFMC the capacity of the clamps to be adjusted for both shallow and deep-water operations, RED said.

RED Engineering has been working with TechnipFMC for over 10 years and completed this latest project in under six months.

This included the design, build and testing of the clamps on a turnkey basis, with RED’s in-house test facility being used for proof of concept and factory testing prior to delivery.

“The project offered a challenge to produce a pair of adaptable clamps that would safely retain two side-by-side umbilical cables,” said RED’s engineer, Mike Stobbart.

“As with previous clamps, these new ones feature spring applied pads to ensure a consistent and reliable clamping force is applied to the umbilicals. However, we have now added a hydraulic actuation system to improve the efficiency of deployment.
