Pipeline installation buoyancy

Customised solutions to best meet your needs

Matrix has developed buoyancy for use in rigid pipeline installation that reduces the in-water weight of the pipeline. This allows deeper water pipe laying using lay vessels built for shallower water. Matrix's buoyancy modules are contoured and strapped to the pipeline and can be linked together. 4,000kg pipeline installation buoyancy modules can be purchased or rented.
