The combination of strength and flexibility of the GRP material used in the CSUB Protection Covers provide unique properties to absorb energy from dropped object/trawls. Testing has been performed up to more than 300 kJ, and based on these result we can simulate and analyse any impact. High impact covers with approx. 500 kJ has been delivered and CSUB has designed covers with impact requirement up to 800 kJ.
All GRP structures are designed according to NORSOK requirement and DnVGL-ST-C501 Composite Components.
The low weight of the GRP Protection Covers has benefits for cost, required size of installation vessel and impact to soft soil areas.
The GRP Protection Structures can either be stabilised by rockdump, or by the use of ballast and skirt solutions designed by CSUB.
