Technip modernizes its flexible pipe plant

Offshore staff

PARISTechnip (Paris:TEC) has invested €68 million ($84.4 million) over four years to modernize its flexible pipe manufacturing plant, Flexi France, in Le Trait, France.

This modernization plan focused on installing new-generation machines and site optimization to fit 12-m-diameter (39-ft-diameter) reels, on which flexible pipes are spooled. Increasing the reel capacity from 9.6 m to 12 m (31 ft to 39 ft) in diameter provides for twice as much flexible pipe per reel.

Technip will also create a new area dedicated to the testing of flexible pipes.
