Although CPW has facilities to provide a wide range of coating types, and we continue to invest to and widen our capabilities, there may on occasion be project requirements which include types of coating not currently available at our Thisvi facility.
CPW has formed alliances to ensure we can offer a complete package of pipe coatings for all onshore or offshore applications.
- Concrete weight coating - Due to high logistics costs, concrete weight coating of pipes should be done as close to the offshore field location as possible. With CPW’s manufacturing location it often makes sense to do this at CPW’s Thisvi facility. CPW is installing a concrete weight coating facility in Thisvi in cooperation with experts in coatings, that is expected to be operational in end 2016.
- Thermal insulation coating - As development of deeper water fields becomes more prevalent, so the need for more advanced multi-layer thermal insulation coatings increases. Again CPW is ready to work with our coating partners to package any thermal coating requirements into our scope if appropriate.
- Other special coatings – CPW can provide other special or bespoke coatings on request, e.g. for fireproofing, wear resistance, etc.
