Case Study: Enhancing Application Performance

Industry: Offshore, Oil & Gas, Renewables

Original Material: Steel

New Material: Nylacast Aquanyl 612


We were tasked with engineering and manufacturing a bespoke ROV activated J-Tube that would meet all the testing requirements to prove the equipment would be field ready for a challenging installation.


This project resulted in a successful installation of the Active J-Tube Seal on the Tommeliten Alpha Development platform in the North Sea. The bespoke applications were delivered for the umbilical installation campaign by our team of offshore certified personnel who provided support & supervision to a global leader in offshore installations for the offshore assembly of the Active J-Tube Seal. The completion of this project, that was engineered & projected managed by our team, adds to our extensive track record in supplying Cable & Umbilical protection & sealing solutions.

Our Supergrip Team had been requested by JDR to provide a Non-Corrosive Pull-In Head Assembly for Hywind Tampen Project, the world’s largest floating offshore wind farm to date, which was suitable for 1 year subsea abandonment. Design requests included a 26-year design life, system minimum bend radius of 2.5m, static BSR included on exit point and 1mT maximum weight.


Having utilised our in-house team of skilled engineers & project management, manufactured, assembled, tested & supplied a number of bespoke articulated pull-in heads & bend stiffeners which were successfully delivered to JDR Cables. The first of which was utilised during offshore installation.
