IK has developed a solution to stop the leakage on the 6”- 45deg elbow on Bonga WT-04 template.
The 6” Bend Split Clamp was designed to be installed by ROV while the pipeline was depressurized (Isolation Valve closed) during the installation.
Due to insufficient space for installation, a diamond wire cutter tool was designed and built for purpose.
Upon succesful modification and installation, a Retrofit Beam was installed to reinforce the structure and restore its original function.

  • Pipe OD: 6" (168,3mm)
  • Design Life: 20 years
