TechnipFMC and Magma Global to enter into a strategic collaboration agreement for hybrid flexible pipe
TechnipFMC has agreed 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 dramatic weight and cost reductions, for subsea fluid transport applications. As part of the collaboration, TechnipFMC is purchasing a minority stake in Magma Global, the company announces in its press release.
Barry Glickman, President of Engineering, Manufacturing & Supply Chain at TechnipFMC, stated: “I am very pleased that we have reached this agreement with Magma, which will further enhance TechnipFMC’s Subsea 2.0 product platform. The lighter, higher performance, and more cost-effective HFP solution, will enable TechnipFMC to strengthen its leadership position in the flexible pipe business and address the new challenges of offshore deepwater fields”.
