HMC entered the Deepwater Subsea market in the late 1990s. Investments in knowledge and development of technology are key factors for success in this market. Welding, Field Joint Coating, Installation methods, but also the use of specialist materials, are areas of technology development that allow HMC to compete.
In 2002 the decision was made to invest in Reeling know-how. A Ph.D. research project was set up to investigate Reeling while using the so-called Tight Fit Pipe (mechanically bonded clad pipe). Jan Meek, Professor Offshore Engineering of the TU Delft, and working for the Heerema Group, was Eelke's supervisor.
Further investigation into the topic is expected. HMC also participates in other joint industry research projects such as welding technologies.
