Project name: Next generation polymer based thermal insulation material /VIKOTHERM R3
Program: PETROMAKS 2
Project coordinator: Trelleborg Offshore Norway (TON)
Project partners: Norner
Project duration: 2016–2019
Project description: Development of novel rubber thermal insulation material for Subsea Production Structures (SPS’s) in general and Christmas Trees (XMT’s) in particular.
The new insulation material can be installed at the shipyards where the equipments are manufactured and to a lower cost compared to equivalent insulation systems. Further, the new insulation material will have equal or better insulation capacity compared to the insulation materials available in todays market. The new material will be designed to have a lifetime of at least 30 years.
