Polyurethane ( PUR ) wins in international competition. For project JDC in Japan, in cooperation with AkerSolutions AS, Mjøsplast AS provides a huge number of Riser Clamps.
Utilization of PUR in Riser Clamps simply demonstrates PUR material properties. Compared with a steel design of the Riser Clamp, the PUR Riser Clamp has a weight of 15 kg in air (steel approx. 98 kg). Weight deduction in combination with rounded edges of product it-selves, makes possible one person to operate the Raiser Clamp with a minimal risk for personal injuries.
JDC is the 4.th project utilizating PUR Riser Clamps delivered from Mjøsplast AS.

Protection Caps in PUR from Mjøsplast AS
One more convincing PUR design is delivered from Mjøsplast AS. For end-user FMC in Kongsberg/ Egina project, Mjøsplast AS together with Aarbakke AS has provided a serious number of protection caps for KC4.2-12 hubs, ID 12 and ID 16. These are protection caps that typical protects open pipe-ends, typical Manifold hubs in dimensions 300 mm and 400 mm, both onshore as offshore. A scratch/ damage at such a pipe-end might cause enormous costs and installation delays. Caused PUR material-elastisity the protection Cap very well protects pipe-end metal surface even if an accident ( not planned activity ) should occur. A 400 mm protection cap have a weight in air close to 75 kg, but subsea just 22 kg. This means removal of the protection cap by a ROV is an easy task.
Mjøsplast is proud of having delivered a new type of riser end covers to PSW Group in Mongstad. The covers are made from the outstanding PU material MP PurElastic, and they will protect the risers from damages when handled on deck and during transportation. The covers come in a Pin side and Box side version, and they are custom made to fit the actual riser type. The first load of risers with riser end covers was shipped to Island Innovator in beginning of November 2014. We want to thank PSW Group for the assignment.
