IHC Engineering Business has delivered the world’s most advanced J-lay systems and is continuing to push the boundaries with new J-lay system projects. Systems with the capability of deploying quad joints at line tensions of up to 1,500 tonnes and supporting catenary tensions of up to 2,000 tonnes at the hang-off clamp.

Large pipe diameter range (4” to 36”) and angle of adjustment (0 to 96 degrees) ensure the systems can lay efficiently in both shallow and deep water. Integral bulky items handling systems and adjustable stinger contribute to the high functionality of the system.

Key design drivers throughout development of our J-lay systems are the efficiency of the pipe handling operations to ensure low cycle time, weight optimisation and safety in all aspects of operation.
