Winner of the IPLOCA New Technologies Award

We are proud to announce that Selmers has won, together with Denys, the 2015 IPLOCA New Technologies Award  sponsored by BP! The award was presented during the annual IPLOCA Convention held in Singapore, from 5-9 October 2015. The Award is given in recognition of a significant achievement in the development of new pipeline technologies.

Selmers designed a vacuum field joint blaster for onshore projects.  Field joint blasting nowadays is often done manual, this causes a lot of dust and the abrasives fall to the ground and pollute the environment. The new designed field joint blaster of Selmers makes blasting dust free and the grit is re-used in the integrated abrasive reclaim system. This improves HSE conditions for workers in the field. Additionally, the  blasting cycle is automatically and this results in a higher production speed, of approximately 2x higher than when this is done manually.
