Nowatec services for the subsea engineering include the strength assessment and redesign of HD Gooseneck and Lifting Adapter. Very high environmental loads during the installation phase require strengthening of the equipment.
In subsea systems, production might periodically be shut down due to various circumstances. In that case, the temperature inside the pipeline needs to be kept to a minimum value so that the oil inside the pipe remains within the acceptable level. Therefore, proper insulation is used to prevent this situation.
Nowatec has performed a large number of projects which involve the heat transfer analysis to verify the subsea equipment insulation for defined allowable temperature during the shut down conditions.
