SPS provides solutions for the mobile construction of onshore pipelines for oil gas, CO2 and water. MASiP forms pipe in the field and directly lays it, avoiding the need to ship pre-formed pipe sections to a pipe dump and manually weld them together. The pipe structure incorporates fibre optic cable – enabling a fully digital approach to lifetime monitoring. This is a new holistic approach to pipeline construction and maintenance.
A patented pipe structure incorporates high strength steel reinforcement and fibre optic monitoring.
A patented mechanical interlock holds high strength steel strip into a spiral configuration.
Potential to halve both the total installed cost and environmental impact of pipeline construction.
A group of pipeline operators have agreed to act as critical friends to this technology.
