TRELLEBORG, Sweden – Trelleborg Offshore has unveiled a new stackable version of the RiserGuard to save storage space offshore.
The stackable version allows stacking of mixed dressed riser joints while maintaining equivalent protection to the original system. The new joints can be stacked alongside buoyant riser joints.
Designed as a free flooding, self equalizing, neutrally buoyant unit, the Stackable RiserGuard offers protection for bare riser joints and external lines during handling, storage, and drilling. The bare or slick riser joint system consists of a series of two piece half shells affixed to the outside of the riser joint.
The Stackable RiserGuard offers quick, easy installation and is impact and abrasion resistant. It also provides the same OD and geometry as buoyant riser joints, allowing bare joints to be run at the same speed as buoyant joints.
