Protective HDPE Subsea Pipe Sleeves for windfarm applications

Protective HDPE Subsea Pipe Sleeves for windfarm applications

This Wind Farm project involved the Pipex px® design and fabrication of a HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) pipe sleeve. This corrosion resistant cover was designed to protect the power supply cable which runs from the Wind Farm located offshore to the onshore substation.  Pipex px® supplied and fabricated 36 spools ranging in size from 18M to 23M totalling an impressive 750 meters of pipe sleeve. The pipe was completed in coaxial extruded yellow HDPE to ensure maximum visibility on the sea bed.

This robust HDPE interlocking pipe system was prefabricated at Pipex px® innovative facility in Plymouth to ensure fast track installation on the sea bed using a pull system, the prototype of which was fully tested offsite at the client’s facility prior to installation.

Benefits of Pipex px® HDPE products include:

  • Impact Resistant
  • Highly corrosion resistant – so ideal solution for harsh marine applications
  • Life expectancy of 60+ years dependant on application
