It is common place to find the vast majority of offshore assets, whether it is a platform, semi-submersible jack up, FPSO or marine vessel, with the potable water system being composed of carbon steel or galvanised carbon steel. Due to the effects of pipework corrosion, which can be a result of continual chlorination for bacterial control, the lifespan of carbon steel pipework is significantly reduced. Therefore, carbon steel is not recommended for use for potable water systems.
OWM provides a comprehensive service from conception to completion, ensuring minimum disruption to offshore operations. All works are completed efficiently, and to the relevant standard.
