Concrete weight coating provides negative buoyancy for subsea lines, mechanical protection during handling, transportation and laying operations, and protects the line during its lifetime in a marine environment.
Concrete is prepared with different specific gravities and thicknesses using quality iron ore and other key raw materials. It can be applied over anti-corrosion or insulation coatings while the reinforcing wire-mesh is wrapped and incorporated in the concrete.
EUPEC provides compression-wrapped reinforced concrete depending on the pipe diameter and the scale of the project. The EUPEC process also includes anode installation to provide an efficient cathodic protection system.
If required for specific projects, our mobile plants can be deployed in close proximity to the lay site, providing local employment and logistical and cost benefits.
