S-Lay

slayIdeal for offshore work in shallow and intermediate waters, S-Lay pipeline construction involves pipe leaving the vessel in a horizontal position. S-Lay construction provides the opportunity for high production rates. 

Start-to-Finish S-Lay Construction Systems

CRC-Evans specializes in start-to-finish S-Lay pipeline construction welding solutions—from pipe facing equipment and copper backup clamps to purge clamps and support equipment, CRC-Evans delivers managed fabrication S-Lay solutions for use in shallow- and intermediate-water pipe-lay applications. Deeper-water S-Lay construction is also possible but requires a more advanced technology, reducing efficiency and cost-effectiveness. 

CRC-Evans designs, manufactures, and implements external automatic welding solutions as well as clamps, pipe facing machines, and other support equipment.
