FoundOcean to Install Formwork at Troll A Platform



FoundOcean will manufacture and install two fabric formwork grout bags to support the expected freespan of the new 36" pipeline at the approach to the Troll A Platform, in the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea. The worksite is in approximately 330m water depth.

Martin Hardy, Technical Director for FoundOcean commented, "We are very pleased to be working with Subsea7 once more. FoundOcean has completed over 160 fabric formwork projects since 1980 and we’ve clearly demonstrated our expertise when it comes to installing fabric formwork at depth." FoundOcean currently holds the world record for the deepest deployed fabric formwork at 1,244m, off the Ivory Coast, West Africa.

The pipeline support will be installed by ROV over two mobilizations in Q1, 2011.
