Customer Type

International OEM – Pipe Coating Company

Location

Batam, Indonesia & Kuantan, Malaysia

Project Summary

Creation of Buckle Arrestors on  44” OD Pipes, with works carried out on various sites across  APAC.

Challenge Set By Customer

The customer, within a very short time frame, required 700 plus pipes to undergo outside diameter machining to create a buckle arrestor profile. This size of pipe modification had never been carried out before onsite and a bespoke solution to eliminate out of  roundness using a hydraulic  internal rounding tool to achieve the machining tolerances. These were tight deadlines to meet as the customers schedule had already been delayed due to no buckle arrestors being installed on the current pipeline which was in the process of being laid offshore.

Outcome

Within days of receiving the enquiry, Glacier had designed and manufactured specialised equipment to suit the application. Technicians where then mobilised with the equipment to APAC. Working on a rotational pattern the work was completed, 3rd party inspected and passed within weeks of receiving the original enquiry and the project was completed to customer satisfaction.

Benefits

Due to the experience, expertise and quick response from Glacier, the customer was able to dispatch the pipes with minimal delay and with significant savings on downtime.
