Cold techniques mitigate all risks linked to hot works: fire hazards, injury, tank emptying procedures, expensive downtime, long maintenance and repair procedures, etc. That means no welding, no parks, no heat. We like it cold.
As process control is key to provide reliable solutions, Cold Pad came up with a triangle of reliability to theorize what it takes to obtain a reliable bonded repair in an offshore environment.
Our teams are made of seasoned Oil & Gas specialists with Structural, Naval architecture, Materials and Material surface engineering background.
We use the law of materials behavior and Finite Element Analysis to obtain realist results. Our FEA model is approved by classification societies.
As offshore repair time is of essence, our engineering team works on quick turnaround offshore operations, with 3 objectives: maximize safety & FPSO uptime, and reduce POB.
"We like it Cold!"
Triangle of Reliability
Cold Pad has adopted an innovative and different approach by identifying first the technical limitations that are inherent to classically bonded reinforcement technology, then by technically addressing one by one each of these limitations.
Reliability can therefore be achieved by overcoming the following technical obstacles:
• Perfect control of bonding operations in “offshore” conditions: as process control is central for a reliable installation, Cold Pad developed proprietary tools for the bonding of each product.
• Durability in marine environment.
• Design and strength.
