February 1st sees the opening of BARDOT Group new office in the UK ! BARDOT London Limited, located in Canary Wharf, is a fully registered limited company.
We will provide additional support for our Oil & Gas customers focused on the North Sea. These include E&P and EPC/EPCI companies, which have shown a growing interest in our polymer based SURF solutions and LOWPEX products. The North Sea is also a key region for the Offshore Renewable industry. BARDOT Group has recently developed new solutions for CPS and connection systems for Offshore Wind, Wave and Tidal Renewable industry.
BARDOT Group will provide Saipem SA with complete Seawater Intake Systems for the two TOTAL Kaombo FPSOs.
The EPSC (engineering, procurement, supply and construction) contract covers both Seawater lifting intake system and Firewater intake system.
Guy Bardot, Chairman, said “KAOMBO is a very important contract for BARDOT Group. This Seawater Intake riser package is a motivating challenge for our SURF Business unit on this major Total’s project.”
It also continues to strengthen our relationship with Saipem Floaters Business Unit. We believe that this order will be followed by many similar awards on FPSO and FLNG realization”View full product details
BARDOT Ballast Modules provide additional weight on Flexible Pipes/Umbilicals/Cables to ensure the bottom stability (Static) or create the lazy wave shape (Dynamic).
BARDOT Ballast Modules can be made of steel or lead and are composed of 2 or 3 elements fastened together on the line requiring additional weight.
To protect them from corrosion, the steel modules are equipped with sacrificial anodes, the lead modules are inert and do not require protection.
Anti-sliding pads made of qualified polychloroprene ensure immobilization and prevent from slippage of the modules on the lines.
BARDOT Static Ballast Modules are used to provide the additional weight required for the bottom stability of Flexible Pipes/Umbilicals/Cables. Modules are designed to withstand the whole service life of the lines, up to 30 years. Extra weight in water can range from 5kg up to 100kg, with material density from 7 to 11.
Our engineering performs bottom stability analysis to optimize the design and provides fit for purpose solutions.
BARDOT Static Ballast Modules compete directly with concrete mattresses for bottom stability solutions. In-line installation during laying operation allows extreme offshore time reductions.
BARDOT Dynamic Ballast Modules are often used with buoyancy modules to create lazy wave or other shapes for Flexibles Pipes/Umbilicals/Cables.
Our qualified solutions of modules can either be directly clamped on the line or assembled through an internal clamp. Our internal clamps for Ballast Modules have been jointly developed with our buoyancy modules solutions. It is fully qualified for dynamic applications. Modules are designed to withstand the whole service life of the lines, up to 30 years. Extra weight in water can range from 5kg up to 100kg, with material density from 7 to 11.
Specific polymer materials allow our clamp to withstand high temperature of pipes, in case of HP/HT fields.
