Poltramp Yard S.A. in Świnoujście, Poland, used the new Roxtec SPM seal for the BoDo Constructor – a newly built cable laying barge-pontoon.
Poltramp Yard needed to seal the openings for a substantial amount of pipes onboard, but in many places welding was not possible due to safety regulations. They therefore decided to use the Roxtec SPM seal which does not require any welding. Fast and easy installation was another reason for the shipyard to choose Roxtec.
The Roxtec SPM seal can be used with any kind of metal pipe and makes it easy to ensure safety and operational reliability without any downtime or cost associated with welding. The seal is approved by all major classification societies.
The 2,700 ton vessel is 120 m long, 32 m wide and 6.5 m deep. It is equipped with a carrousel for cable storage and a cable laying system. Roxtec has supplied a large number of sealing solutions for the project.
