SPS – Steel Repair and Strengthening

SPS (Steel Repair and Strengthening) retains the existing steel plate and reinforces with a new steel layer and polyurethane core resulting in a strong, flatter surface. SPS repairs and strengthening can be undertaken while the vessel is still in-service, eliminating the need to wait for an offshore shutdown period or dry dock visit. Approved by all major classification societies for permanent repair and strengthening of existing vessels and structures and for new build applications.

Typical offshore applications include:

  • – Pontoon reinstatement on semi-submersibles
  • – Side impact protection on FPSOs
  • – Strengthen helidecks, pipe decks and landing areas
  • – Deck reinstatement on all platforms
  • – Create blast walls
  • – OSV decks reinstatement
  • – Dropped object protection solutions
  • – Jack up spudcan reinforcement
  • – Fire rated thermal barriers
  • – Tank top reinstatement
  • – Car decks
  • – Ice class upgrades
  • – Sound and vibration deadening on passenger vessels
  • – Deck reinstatement on any vessel

 

New build panels can also be used which lead to simplified, more robust structures with less welding, labour and material required. The resulting reduction in fatigue and corrosion prone details increases service-life and reduces maintenance costs.

Applications include:

  • – Escape tunnels
  • – Enhanced oil recovery tanks
  • – Dropped object protection solutions
  • – Hatch covers
  • – Tank tops
  • – Vehicle decks
  • – Citadel access protection doors
