Njord FBM (Flowline Buckling Mitigation)

Njord FBM (Flowline Buckling Mitigation)

Buckling arises when pipelines move from their original installed position on the seabed. The movements can cause high compression forces, bending moments and shear forces that affect the pipeline integrity. To relieve these stresses, the pipelines natural response would be to buckle. Adding discrete elements of buoyancy to the pipeline can help influence the movement and to mitigate this buckling.

Longevity subsea

25 years standard subsea life with less than 5% buoyancy loss

Abrasion resistant outer coating

In house testing has been carried out to verify the performance of the outer coating in a range of different seabed media.
