Over time offshore structures may become damaged or need repair due to corrosion, collisions or fatigue. Grout can be used to address this degradation in the load bearing capacity of the structure. For example grouted clamps can be used to reinforce the damaged part of the platform enabling the structural strength to be brought back to design conditions.
Grouting can also be used to increase the load bearing capacity of a structure in advance of new topsides being installed. The grout is used to stiffen the structure or add further bracing to it.
The Core team is experienced in the usage of grout for structural strengthening of offshore structures. Please contact us to discuss how grouting can be used to strengthen offshore structures and extend the overall life of the asset.
