Case Studies

Pumping Line Pipe Support Upgrade Ingenia was engaged by a major industrial client for the design and installation of upgraded pipeline supports. Existing pumping line vibrations were leading to significant movement of platforms and fatigue within pipe mounts and support frames.

Daniel Halls initiated the work and provided pipeline load analysis and modelling based on pipes located through 3D Laser point survey. Arie Overduin worked with Muralikumar Krishnaiyan who designed an alternate support structure for each of the revised pipe support locations.

The engineered design input was passed to Aaron DeVisser and Mike Salter who developed the engineering concept into 3D CAD Model and fabrication drawings. With the design drawings provided to our sister company Smart Fabrication, the supports were fabricated for installation.

Simon Schulz coordinated the onsite installation of the fabricated steel work during the recent site shutdown with minimal interruption to continuing site activities. Following the installation, a site lead commented that “you have fixed it! The vibrations use to be 10 times as bad” and mentioned they were now comfortable to walk on the service platforms again.

This has been a great example of the capabilities of the Ingenia Engineering Team. What could they do for you?
