Aker Solutions has more than 20 years experience in delivering reliable and cost effective tie-in connection systems and tools.
Our tie-in systems are based on standard components and interfaces which provide maximum flexibility during installation.
No two field developments are the same. Water depth, pressure, temperatures and seabed conditions all vary, and are critical factors when it comes to choosing the best subsea tie-in and connection solutions. Aker Solutions offers an extensive range of field-proven technology for diverless connection of umbilicals, rigid pipelines, flexible flowlines and risers, including connector designs.
Our tie-in systems are based on standard components and interfaces which provide maximum flexibility during installation. They are hugely adaptable, able to handle sizes of 4” to 42”, either single bore or multibore versions.
Fast, installation friendly and reliable diverless connection systems.
Both our vertical (VCS) and horizontal (HCS) connection systems are designed to provide safe operations and installation with the following benefits:
- No large running tool required
- Fast installation; 3-4 hours per jumper, both connectors (landing + connecting + back seal test)
- Minimum requirement of ROV tools
- Less mobilisation time for tooling
- No water dampers required
- Multiple jumper installations can be performed with connection tools remaining subsea
Our long-standing reputation for being a reliable supplier of subsea tie-in systems is backed up by a worldwide support network. We offer onshore and offshore assistance, as well as installation, commissioning and routine or ad-hoc service.
