MSI specializes in repairs and life-extensions of offshore oil & gas installations with particular emphasis on FPSO’s and production platforms worldwide. As a full service provider of steel and coating repairs, MSI offers experienced and multi-skilled crews and the most advanced tools for:
|DE-MUCKING||Manual removal, de-mucking ejectors and/or vacuum systems are used to ensure a cost –effective and quick removal of sediments for inspections and repairs of all types of tanks onboard.|
|MSI uses a combination of high-pressure water (typically heated) and environmentally friendly de-greasing chemicals to clean areas to be repaired to hot-work standards.|
|SCAFFOLDING||MSI can erect any type of scaffolding needed onboard to obtain access to tank internals or any maintenance/repair item externally on the vessel. We have systems for hull repairs above the water-line and accommodations/engine casings.|
|UHP & GRIT
|Ultra High Pressure (UHP) blasting with fresh water has nearly replaced grit blasting as a surface preparation tool for off-shore use and MSI has 15 years of experience with these machines world-wide. Using a fleet of 25+ UHP machines tailored for onboard use and a staff of over 100 UHP operators, MSI is able to assist with any size requirement clients may have.
Grit blasting is used as required to e.g. prepare areas for SPS overlay or ready scrubbers and filters for specialty coatings like vinyl ester glass flake products.
|COATING||Using professional crews with spray painting experience from coatings repairs on over 300 vessels, MSI can repair or replace any coating system onboard.|
|STEEL REPAIRS||MSI carries out class approved steel repairs to any structures onboard. We have changed out hundreds of tons of steel in tanks without any interruptions to the vessel’s operation.|
|SPS OVERLAY||When gas-freeing is not easily available, SPS overlays may be an alternative in areas such as main deck reinforcements.|
|UHP CUTTING||MSI uses the most modern equipment to cold-cut steel onboard for access or crop and removal. Piping, profiles and steel plate up to 50 mm thickness can easily and cost-effectively be cut using UHP water without any need for cleaning or gas-freeing.|
|MSI carries out repairs and replacement/installation of hydraulic & pneumatic lines and cargo heating systems. Using a combination of access lift platforms and rope access, MSI can replace or repair any hydraulic lines or heating coils in your tanks with no interruptions to the operations of the vessel.
MSI crops and renews any dimension pipes onboard and - by using cold-cutting with UHP water - is able to crop and renew a large array of process piping without the need for Hotwork permits and associated cleaning and preparation work.
MSI offers fabrication of pipe sections, spool-pieces and other steel structures from facilities in Gdynia, Poland and Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
