#TechnipFMC and #MagmaGlobal collaborate on hybrid flexible pipe for offshore applications

TechnipFMC has agreed to the terms of a collaboration agreement with Magma Global Ltd. to develop a new generation of hybrid flexible pipe (HFP) for use in offshore applications. HFP is expected to provide increased strength and fatigue performance, while also achieving significant weight and cost reductions, for subsea fluid transport applications. As part of the collaboration, TechnipFMC is purchasing a minority stake in Magma Global. Magma Global’s m-pipe is a high strength carbon fiber and Victrex PEEK thermoplastic composite pipe that is one tenth the weight in water of equivalent steel or non-bonded flexible pipe and is highly resistant to degradation. m-pipe is manufactured using high quality carbon fibre and Victrex PEEK in a fully automated robotic 3D laser print process, and the Magma In Country Manufacturing Module (ICMM) can meet local content requirements.
