Buoyancy

Syntactic Buoyancy

Syntactic buoyancy modules are used in offshore applications to offset weight and supply support to umbilicals, termination heads, pipelines, cables and flexible risers. Buoyancy also provides uplift for vertebrate bend restrictor (VBR) strings and other components that need neutral or positive lift.

Key features of syntactic buoyancy modules:

  • Reduces top tension loads 
  • Maintains proper configuration for specific projects 
  • Modules are produced in pairs 
  • Hardware and or straps for easy installation 
  • Offshore installation is safe and efficient
