SPS has successfully completed a major order for Saipem on the Chevron-led Mafumeira Sud project, offshore Angola. SPS was awarded the contract to design, engineer and manufacture a significant quantity of specialist concrete protection structures for pipeline installation. SPS designed rigid and flexible mattresses, including some with special lightweight composition, and also supplied custom-designed lifting and installation equipment.

This was a major project, led from our Great Yarmouth (UK) headquarters, in close partnership with Saipem and involving a large number of local suppliers. The project also utilised the recently-constructed deep water harbour in Great Yarmouth for mobilisation of 1,800 Tonnes of cargo to Saipem’s vessel.
