Subsea Innovation delivers bend stiffener repair hang-off clamp to Flexlife

Subsea Innovation, a Tekmar Group company specialising in the design and build of bespoke equipment for the offshore energy sector, has successfully designed, built, tested, and supplied a bend stiffener repair hang-off clamp for flexible riser specialist Flexlife.

To meet the tight project schedule and planned offshore installation campaign, the entire project was delivered within 6 weeks of receiving the order with the hang-off clamp now installed on an FPSO in the UK sector of the North Sea.

The repair hang-off clamp provides a failsafe contingency hang-off solution in the event of bolt failure on an existing bend stiffener already in situ and was installed retrospectively without the need for any removal or changes to the existing set-up.

The success of the project demonstrates Subsea Innovations’ ability to provide bespoke engineered solutions based on the company’s field-proven technologies, and the experienced in-house capability that enables them to react quickly, efficiently, and in a safe manner to deliver rapid and robust response equipment and solutions.
