Unaflex Submarine Hose
Our client came to us with an urgent requirement to replace their UNAFLEX submarine hose.
A leak in the current hose meant a shutdown of fuel transfer from ship to site.
Time Line took action quickly:
- Avoided prolonged shut down with temporary solution – Our engineers constructed and shipped a temporary low cost alternative floating hose solution that effectively resumed production whilst the replacement was being made.
- Tested & Certified – Tested to standard of OCIMF certification. Submarine hose was also tested certifying it’s resistance to age, stress, abrasion, weathering, sunlight, oil and sea water.
- Bespoke items manufactured & delivered ahead of timescale – Our engineers worked alongside the UNAFLEX manufacturers to ensure we constructed a suitable hose consistent with the Client’s existing infrastructure. It was emergency air freighted to site via a privately chartered cargo flight by Time Line Logistics department.
Despite only being needed for a few weeks the temporary hose was a much needed lifeline to restart site operations and now a valuable on site spare should other older hose need replacing. Furthermore, the temporary hose’s high quality meant our Client could use it for site expansion.
