During the exhibition, Unique System LLC (USA) will showcase an array of products and services that represent each of the companies within the Unique Maritime Group. A few of these include the Unique Seaflex range of Buoyancy Products (Air Lift Bags, Water-filled Ballast Bags and Mono Buoyancy Units), Hydrographic Survey Gear, Diving Gear (Hot Water Unit, ICU, Scrubber, Fire Extinguisher, Sat System Model, LARS Model) and Unique Wellube range of services which include Hot Tapping & Line Stopping, On-Site Machining, Pipeline Rehabilitation, Under Pressure Leak Sealing, Pipeline Repair Clamps, Online Safety Valve Testing among many others.
A prominent feature that will be showcased in the display of equipment is the range of UniFlex Air Lift Bags specifically designed for the US market. The UniFlex range covers the most commonly used sizes of air lift bags in the offshore industry (500kg, 1t, 2t, 3t and 5t) and have been specifically designed to meet the rigorous safety requirements of the now widely recognised IMCA Guidance D016. UniFlex Air Lift Bags have not only been designed with a 5 times working load limit safety factor built in, but each size has been physically overloaded by water filled drop test to verify that the minimum requirement is not only met but exceeded. Independent type test certificates are available for all sizes of UniFlex Air Lift Bags. They are also fitted with a robust inverter line attachment point which again has been function tested during full scale under water trials. No other manufacturer worldwide has gone to such lengths to ensure their products are fit for purpose, safe in use, made of the highest quality materials whilst maintaining a competitive price tag.
Commenting on the participation, Arjun Ramchandani, CEO at Unique System LLC (USA) said, “We are proud to be participating in our ninth Underwater Intervention. During the course of the exhibition, we plan to meet our existing and prospective clients and also interact with our local US service providers and continue to have discussions about what we as a Group are capable of doing and promote new ideas for our industry. As a product-based marketing strategy this year, we plan to extensively promote our UniFlex ALB in the market as a leading product for underwater use. We are also looking at gradually establishing Unique Wellube as a renowned brand for pipeline-related services in the region.”
