Flotation
Subsurface Buoys
Pipeline Installation Buoy
Proven offshore technology, in which you can trust.
To reduce tensions on both vessel and pipeline during
installation, buoyancy modules are very often fitted.
This can happen either on the laying vessel itself or on
land if the shore pull system is being used.
Our commitment is to design, manufacture and supply
the best possible solution for your pipelaying buoyancy
requirements, using durable materials that can be taken
onto future projects, and which will require very little
maintenance either during or between projects.
The main features and benefits of Hippo Marine’s
unique approach to this application are as follows:
easily and cost effectively customised to suit specific
project requirements
extremely durable outer polyurethane elastomer skin
kevlar-type skin reinforcement available as an option
various foam densities available depending upon the
depth requirement
some exclusive foams available of closed-cell nature
to eliminate risk of loss of buoyancy due to damage to
the module
modules designed to accommodate your preferred
attachment and release system
base designed to fit multiple different pipe sizes
one-piece or multi-module systems available
