Subsea equipment and systems are often installed in cage-like steel frame structures for protection as well as for easy setup and maintenance of the system components. Systems and environments using subsea structures include
Construction materials used in subsea frame structures has to perform reliably under the demanding conditions of subsea applications. Mechanical, technological and geometric characteristics have to meet and even exceed defined standards to ensure the cost-effective construction, durability and safe operation of subsea systems.
Features of MSH sections that are highly relevant in the application environment of subsea structures include heavy wall thicknesses, extremely high yield strength, good impact toughness at low temperatures, tight tolerances and excellent welding properties.
