Offshore facilities have made a huge progress in the last decades, evoluting from fixed platforms to undersea production systems referring to all connections, equipment and pipes that are installed at sea bed. The selection and design of these production facilities are a complex task and this is possible nowadays thanks to new materials, protection systems and diving operations.
Offshore structures are designed for installation in the open sea, lakes, gulfs, etc., many kilometers from shorelines. These structures may be made of steel, reinforced concrete or a combination of both. Within the category of subsea structures, there are various types of structures, depending on their use and primarily on the water depth in which they will work, PLEMs, Subsea pipelines manifolds, and pipelines are all subsea structures and GPP provides installation services for all of them.
