Norwegian offshore industry chooses Semcon

Norwegian offshore industry chooses Semcon Semcon's efforts on the Norwegian market have begun to bear fruit. After the order from Th!nk Nordic, 51 percent owned by Ford, we have recently been awarded another prestigious commission. Offshore Design AS of Oslo has appointed Semcon's Analysis & Test Center as their trading partner in the teeth of stiff competition. "We regard this as an important breakthrough within the Norwegian offshore industry. There are few test centres in the Nordic countries which can offer the capacity we have and enquiries have already come in from other offshore companies," says David Hellström, responsible for sales at Semcon ATC (Analysis & Test Center AB). Offshore Design AS has been commissioned by an international oil company to develop new technological specifications and procedures for durability and integrity in offshore support designs. "They were awarded the contract in the light of Offshore Design's top competence and Semcon ATC's well-developed, ISO-certificated test facilities and also their willingness to deliver the right product at the right time," says Trond Monshaugen, Offshore Design's project leader. There was competition for the order from Denmark and Sweden as well as from Norway. "We will be carrying out six different test series where pipe joints are tested for their pressure and tensile characteristics," David Hellström explains. "Around 500 strain gauges will be used during the tests. These are to test what stresses and strains develop under load, which can be up to 2,000 tonnes per pipe."
