Matrix Composites & Engineering
Matrix Composites & Engineering (MCE) has delivered one of the largest installation buoyancy structures in the world to Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC).
The structure weighs 103MT in air and provides 150MT of uplift in seawater, the equivalent of eight large public buses. Made from a modular design, the buoyancy system (called 'IsoBlox™') can be assembled in an almost infinite number of 3D configurations to meet the most challenging requirements.
The structure forms part of a modular installation buoyancy package and will be used to deploy HMC's subsea production equipment used on a major LNG project off the coast of Western Australia.
