In order to improve the process efficiency, WIR designed by BARDOT GROUP are able to pump water as deep as 1000m and sustain the potential mechanical stresses created by currents, vibration and WIR structure’s weight.
BARDOT Group developed an innovative and efficient solution of Deep Water WIR, combining:
* High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipes
* Rubber Hoses
* Riser seats
* Polyurethane tapers
High Ratio of Local Content
Thanks to various manufacturing sites worldwide, BARDOT Group is able to produce WIR solutions close to where it is requested, and helps you optimize your local content and project logistic.
Our expertise in composite manufacturing allows us to reach custom-made solution and flawless product quality, to deliver timely the best product to our clients.
BARDOT Group’s WIR are designed to be modular and lightweight to ease handling and improve installation steps. Thanks to smart & modular design, installation is adapted to the vessel’s constraints.
A custom-made Installation Procedure is provided for each project of WIR to ensure the proper assembly of your equipment.
Our engineers are also available for training and on-site monitoring of the installation, providing maximum support to our clients.
WIR are designed to fit your requirements of water depth, temperature, flow rate, and to accommodate the hydrodynamics stresses of your operation environment.
Materials have been selected for their good behaviour over time. Our design conservatively considers end-of-life properties, and guarantees that no maintenance will be necessary.
The low weight of our WIR decreases the overall weight of the equipment, and allows the pumping at greater depth with less impact on Hull.
The modular design of our WIR allows a quick on-board installation, through the vessel’s hull or aside hull with optimized installation facilities.
Modular strapping systems
Our wide range of strapping systems provides adapted solutions to fit with your environmental loads and project life.
Compliance to standards
Designed with respect of international offshore standards, especially API17-L1 and API17-L2.
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.
