Airbone O&G has been awarded the first pipe supply to Over Sea & Land Concrete (OSL) for use in pumping ready-mix concrete from vessel-based operations to land construction sites.
OSL represents the first major step change in the manufacturing and delivery of concrete in decades. The advantages in costs, logistics and time to site delivery that OSL brings to the concrete industry is game changing. Add the near total reduction in the carbon footprint compared to traditional means of concrete production and delivery then OSL represent the leading disruptive technology in the world today.
Airborne Oil & Gas will provide multiple sections of pipe for vessel-based deployment to shore on the first of many OSL vessels, the advantages that Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) brings to the project are very defined, a low cost yet strong and robust flexible product ideally suits the OSL winning formula for vessel to shore pumping. The small MBR and fatigue resistance of TCP makes it an ideal choice for OSL operations.
