Distributed Buoyancy Module Systems

Reducing installation time by half

Matrix designs and manufactures distributed buoyancy clamping systems that support umbilicals, hoses, cables and flexible risers. The system is comprised of an internal clamp, a pair of buoyancy elements and an outer clamp and can be used across a range of flexible risers and umbilicals. With installation time reduced by around 50 per cent, the distributed buoyancy clamping system significantly reduces clients' total installation costs.
