Recognised by the Oil & Gas sector as an innovative solution, Filter unit Ridgeway Rockbags® have been used widely in the Northern North Sea for subsea asset protection.
Proven to provide a solution against spans, the flexible nature and versatility of the Filter unit Ridgeway Rockbags® allow it to be installed under flowlines and umbilicals, effectively adapting to the undulating topography of the seabed.
The 8T Ridgeway Rockbag® offers the ability to accurately “spot dump” 8 tonnes of loose stone in one concentrated area. This option offers a method of protecting assets located in areas restricted to certain sizes of vessels or if an asset requires a small amount of loose rock effectively eliminating the need for an expensive rock dumping vessel.
Installation is achieved with an ROV and high-resolution sonar imaging which significantly reduces health and safety risks. Once installed the Ridgeway Rockbags® will last a minimum of 50 years in saline water and can be installed as a temporary or permanent solution for subsea asset protection.
Ridgeway Rockbags® can be easily decommissioned or retrieved once the asset has reached its end of life. The one-point lifting ring, that remains as part the product after installation, makes the decommissioning process simple and cost effective.
