Oilfield Technology,

Advanced Insulation has been awarded – for a second consecutive year – Supplier of the Year status by Aker Solutions.

Brazil project

The award, presented by Aker Solutions at its Supplier Day 2014 event in Brazil on 4 December 2014, was in recognition of Advanced Insulation’s performance and contribution for the Commercial Items category.

Commenting for Advanced Insulation, Managing Director Andrew Bennion says: “We are delighted to be rewarded for our efforts by such a prestigious global company.”

Advanced Insulation has been working with Aker Solutions in Brazil for a number of years and, more recently, has been supplying its ContraTherm® C55 multi-layer syntactic phenolic composite system for use on 99 vertical subsea trees being delivered to the Guará, Lula, Sapinhoá and other subsalt oilfields in the Santos Basin. The US$300 million contract was awarded to Aker Solutions by Petrobras.

Coatings for high-temperature subsea developments

The ContraTherm C55 subsea system from Advanced Insulation can be tailored to meet specific subsea project requirements. The resilient insulation material has been developed to tolerate the extreme temperatures and pressures required for high-temperature subsea developments. It can be applied as a wet coating directly to primed substrates in the field, as a pre-moulded engineered component, or a combination of both for certain applications.
