8inch Bend Repair Clamp

IK have successfully supervised the installation of an IK designed subsea pipeline repair clamp. The clamp is designed to reinstate the permanent structural and pressure integrity of the partially buckled 8” pipeline.

The clamp installation was carried out by divers under IK supervision and was pressure tested as required to prove the repair.

The largest challenges of the repair were the uncertainty of the Pipeline ovality and degree of bend in the partially buckled pipeline. The pipeline repair clamp was designed to allow for these uncertainties and still maintained tight tolerances to ensure a permanent repair solution
