Quality and service
All Huisman products are designed and built in accordance with the international standards and certified by recognised authorities such as Lloyd's, DNV, ABS, NMD and TüV. Our globally operating service network is on stand-by to provide all service support after delivery and installation, as well on location as by remote access from one of the service centres.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
