New Industries recently completed fabrication, inspection and testing of in-line valve and sled structures for a large diameter deep water pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico.
“On this project, we completed 48 welds which included 16 welds on the in-line valve structures and 32 welds on the in-line sled structures,” said Chad Paradee, New Industries project manager. “This project was successful due to great teamwork from all parties involved including New Industries, the installation contactor and the end user.”
Structural fabrication included cradles, yokes, support frames, and lifting devices for both the valve and sled structures.
“This project is the first of three jobs for the deep water Gulf of Mexico for one of the world’s largest pipeline installation contractors.” said New Industries President Bill New. “I am especially proud of the outstanding quality and safety performance of our employees and subcontractors on this challenging project.”
