Stork Technical Services (Stork), a provider of knowledge-based asset integrity management services for the oil and gas, chemical and power sectors has announced today (02 September, 2013) the official launch of its new and innovative range of composite wrap solutions.

Ageing asset infrastructure requires expensive maintenance and repair.  Pipe corrosion in particular is a major industry challenege.  Stork responded to this demand by developing and extending its range of technologies and solutions.  As part of the organisation’s advanced asset integrity portfolio, Stork now offers composite wrap solutions which are specifically designed to provide flexible, efficient and cost-effective repairs to piping and infrastructure components. The new technologies include Stork PowerSleeve and Stork AquaWrap; both innovations can also be used to restore structures and vessels from internal and external wall loss.

Fraser Coull, Operations Support Director for Stork Technical Services said: “The launch of our composite wrap solutions places us in a prime position to utilise our multi-skilled engineers in the installation of both technologies; further enhancing our innovative approach to asset lifecycle extension and ensuring value is added throughout the asset lifecycle.

With the ageing infrastructure in the North Sea, maintaining asset integrity is a challenge which the industry must take seriously. Composite wrap solutions are a proactive approach and safe approach which can benefit the industry’s growing concern as a whole.”
