ColdShield™ is a permanent structural reinforcement and repair for FPSO hull. It addresses issues like corrosion plate thinning, including pitting. Typical hull applications include corroded decks, side shells, bottom shells, frames, tanks and offshore offloading buoys.
Although bonded composite reinforcements provide a real alternative to conventional « hot » structural repairs, they remain vulnerable to the humidity inherent to the offshore environment.
ColdShield™ is designed to remain impervious to marine conditions, especially during the two critical phases of installation and servicing. In addition, the prequalified installation procedure has been turned into an industrial process intended to be faithfully reproduced on site for reliable and repeatable performances.
ColdShield™ is now class-approved by the 4 main IACS classification societies!
