Technowrap™ is internationally recognised and all engineering is bespoke and completed in-house, in accordance with the latest issues of ISO 24817 and ASME PCC-2, offering a repair life of up to 20 years dependant on design conditions.

Some of the key
  • With Technowrap’s increasing popularity among US customers, there are numerous examples that attest to this, foir example;.We provided an engineered composite repair on a large methanol drip pan on an offshore platform in the Gulf of Mexico – with a 10-year design life –
  • Technowrap was used repairto reinstate the integrity of two pressure vessels for a major operator in the Texas Eagle Ford Basin. This solution has a 20-year design life as well as long-term corrosion protection.
  • We partnered with a local specialist provider to refurbish a corrosion-hit main deck on a platform offshore Trinidad & Tobago. The work, for a global operator, constituted a cold-work solution as the platform was online.
  • Technowrap was used to reinstated a production chemical injection skip pan on an asset in the Gulf of Mexico, for a global major operator. Again, this was engineered with a 10-year design life
  • Several areas of a logging support deck plate on a global supermajor’s platform in the Gulf of Mexico were repaired using a Technowrap application.

Each of these projects posed unique challenges, yet they all shared a common priority: implementing a robust repair solution that would restore confidence in our customers regarding the integrity of their infrastructure.We’re continuing to grow our reputation in the States – and indeed internationally – as a specialist partner looking to identify and safely deliver the optimum solution.
