14″ MORGRIP® Connector Testing Complete and Prepared for North Sea

Connector Subsea Solutions (CSS) have successfully built and tested 2 off 14” #900 MORGRIP® Connectors with ISO 27509 #900 Compact Weld Neck Flanges.

Functionality and structural integrity of the MORGRIP® Connectors was demonstrated through factory acceptance testing at our workshop in Walsall, UK.

Due to tight delivery schedule, the connectors underwent internal and hydrotesting at the same time, flange to flange, maintaining 148.5 bar pressure for an 8 hour hold period.

The connectors are wrapped, boxed, ready for deployment and installation in the North Sea in August with offshore support from CSS technicians.

Special thanks to Irek Klapka, Dave Riley, Richard Craddock, Billy Jones, Jamie Sutherland, Dawn Hardie and Shahed Razvi for their efforts on this project.

Get in touch if you’re looking for pipeline repair, contingency, decommissioning or rerouting work. We have a range of MORGRIP® mechanical connectors and clamps in all sizes and pressure ratings, for topside and subsea, diver installed and fully remotely installed.
