SOLVING STABILISATION & INTEGRITY CHALLENGES
Offshore environmental conditions create significant challenges for caissons and conductors, with lateral forces from repeated wave action result in lateral displacement, localised stresses and even resonance. Wear and failure of traditional shims allow excessive lateral displacement within the guide which over time leads to fatigue and impact damage, with potential fracture and loss.
Unchecked, extensive and costly remedial maintenance or complete replacement is often required. AquaTerra’s AquaShim® developed in association with OGTC, provides cost effective long term stabilisation, halting deterioration, reducing localised stresses and increasing lifespan.
