Pipelay

Huisman is a world market leader for turnkey delivery of deepwater pipelay systems.

 

We deliver integrated systems such as Flex-lay systems, S-lay systems, J-lay systems, and Reel-lay systems, as well as combinations of these lay methods, the Multi-lay systems. In addition to fully integrated systems, we can also provide a full package of related standalone equipment such as A&R systems.

 

Generally, the complexity of our projects and their innovative character require solution-oriented thinking, technical excellence, creativity and a passion for innovation. We can provide both standardized and customized pipelay systems. By closely cooperating with our clients we can meet client specific lay requirements for creating the pipelay systems of the future, equipped for deeper waters and higher capacities.

Flex-lay

Flex-lay can be used for the installation of flexible flowlines, risers and umbilicals in deepwater. We have delivered several complete Flex-lay systems, including tower structures, tensioners, A&R winches and sheaves, hang-off clamps, upper & lower chutes, reel drive units and power and control systems, for some clients in combination with other pipelay systems.

J-Lay

The J-lay method is intended for deepwater pipeline installation. The pipe leaves the lay system in an almost vertical position. We have a solid experience in delivering complete J-lay systems - from concept design to start-up of operations - including tower structures, tower angle adjustment systems, pipe handling equipment, line-up systems and the control system commissioning onboard.

Multi-Lay

Several methods of pipelaying can be combined onboard one vessel. Our combined Rigid and Flexible Reel-lay and J-lay system for the Seven Seas is a good example. More


Reel-lay

Due to its high production rate, Reel-lay is an extremely efficient method for the installation of pipelines up to 20 inch in all waters. Huisman is experienced in delivering complex Reel-lay systems including main and piggybackreels, CT, traction and storage winches, tensioners, drives and supporting cranes.

S-Lay

Due to its high production rate and the possibility to install concrete coated pipe, S-lay is extremely suitable for pipe installation in shallow and intermediate waters. Huisman currently delivered a complete S-lay system - from concept design to start-up of operations - for SapuraCrest's pipelay vessel Sapura 3000.
