COMBINATION OF NOVEL MATERIAL PLATFORMS DELIVERING COST EFFECTIVE WET INSULATION SOLUTIONS
Adam Kopystynski - Technical Solutions Manager, Shawcor
The current oil price environment challenges the Offshore Industry to develop fields at lower costs, translating to a need of lower risk and more cost effective solutions.
Shawcor addressed this challenge by combining Shawcor’s ULTRA™ best-in-class wet insulation with rapid cast-in-place NEMO™ 1.1 field joints, which proved to be the most efficient end-to-end solution for an Offshore Project in Australia. Download the paper.

This paper addresses the use of styrenic alloys as multi-layered solids and foams offering the lowest thermal conductivity wet insulation system available on the market. Together, with a thermally efficient epoxy-urethane hybrid solid field jointing material, offers many advantages over historically used solutions. Some of the key features to be discussed are: improved thermal efficiency of the end-to-end solution, thinner insulation systems, rapidly cast field joints, increased resistance to hot/wet environments, compliance with ISO 12736 wet aging requirements, etc.
The industry will benefit from this paper by developing a further understanding of new technologies available in the market that could bring to relevant savings when compared to traditional wet insulation solutions.
