On the one hand, field developments in deep water, with higher pressure and temperature levels, and more corrosive fluids, require to develop new welding technologies. On the other hand, the current turbulent environment requires us to offer high-end competitive capabilities to address operators’ capital investment constraints. Serimax has been investing continuously to develop its leadership position in the field of welding technology through strong product development and R&D programs: Saturnax range, Externax, CleverWeld, and welding methods for corrosion resistant alloys, steel catenary riser etc. The inauguration of Serimax's new Welding Technology Center located close to Paris, a facility dedicated to R&D and innovation, is demonstrating its commitment to building the future and developing new equipment solutions, new welding processes, weldability programs, and much more.
Combining our expertise and investing in joint R&D programs provide a unique opportunity to develop fit-for-purpose welding solutions for the Reel-lay market and new technologies highly focused on driving the cost of our projects down. The development of dedicated welding processes using robotic or breakthrough technologies will tackle market needs, improving productivity. Focusing on early engagement to anticipate customer needs and by combining industry leading technologies and capabilities, our joint R&D program will drive technological innovation.
This to improve quality and efficiency, ultimately reducing project cost, as well as enabling us to respond to new growing challenges (high fatigue resistance, exotic material for sour services application) with optimum welding solutions.
Subsidiary of Vallourec, Serimax is a full service welding company offering fully integrated welding solutions for operations on land and at sea, in the most extreme conditions and challenging environments, whilst being tailored to the specific needs and requirements of its clients.
