Welded elements for jack-up rigs
Offshore oil & gas fields are explored using jack-up rigs that must guarantee the highest level of operating safety. The steel making up the structural elements, particularly the legs, must offer exceptional mechanical characteristics, in particular very high yield strength in addition to high toughness at low temperatures and sufficient weldability.
Industeel produces welded elements for jack-up leg manufacture. These elements are assembled from cut racks and hot pressed chords welded on both sides of each rack.
These pieces are flame-cut from very high quality quenched and tempered plates:
Very high tensile properties (690MPa) and very high levels of toughness at low temperature (-60°C / -76°F) with improved weldability.
Very tight tolerances comparable to machined parts, with in particular stringent guarantees on squareness.
Typical grades: SuperElso® 690CR
These pieces are hot-pressed from high yield strength plates (690 MPa), quenched and tempered, with high toughness values at low temperatures (- 60°C).
Typical grades: 400MPa to 690MPa grades
Welded elements assembled from racks and chords with exceptional sizes.
Tight tolerances on flatness and camber chord twist on finished welded elements.
The properties in the weld deposit metal and the heat affected zone are strictly homogeneous with the base metal.
Typical grades: 830MPa / HY120
