Abakan Recieves Award for Subsea Pipeline Technology

Press Release
Monday, April 01, 2013

Adding to a collection of innovation and technology awards, Abakan Inc. announced that its proprietary CermaClad clad pipe product was awarded the "Subsea Pipeline Technology of the Year" award by the Pipeline Industries Guild.

MesoCoat, an Abakan subsidiary that developed the CermaClad technology, received the award at the Pipeline Industries Guild National Dinner in London on March 12.

The CermaClad high-speed, large-area clad pipe technology produces a superior metallurgical clad pipe product for the oil and gas industry, where availability of metallurgical clad pipes and the associated lead time have been a major concern. The technology uses a high intensity plasma light source – "mini-sun" – to rapidly fuse anti-corrosion and anti-wear materials to large areas of steel, including pipes.

Abakan said MesoCoat's process offers 40 times higher productivity compared to current metallurgical cladding technologies, and it enables a three to six times longer life for metal assets and improved metallurgical and mechanical properties at the lowest lifecycle cost. CermaClad offers on-time delivery, and up to 80% reduction in lead times for seamless, metallurgically clad pipes at costs lower than those of competing alternatives.

The Pipeline Industries Guild was formed in 1957. It caters directly to the needs of the pipeline industry, regardless of engineering discipline, application or qualification. The Guild's membership comprises those with interests in pipelines that transport hydrocarbon products, chemicals, water, wastewater and many other substances, both on and offshore.
