ITP has qualified suppliers to provide the various components for the integrated PIP solutions, these include: insulation, steel pipe, wires, connectors, instrumentation, fibre optic, etc.
ITP carries our supplier audits and inspection as per the company and project quality plan to insure the integrity of the ITP system.
ITP can deliver according to Incoterms required by the project.
The Ranville fabrication site in accessible by permit load trucks carrying up to 25 m long pipes. The site has its own quay with access to the English Channel, and is 2 km from the bulk port of Blanville, which has a deep draught quayside. Larger container ports of Le Havre and Caen are accessible by truck.
ITP provides fully fabricated solutions to best suit the project logistics.
ITP’s full PIP and insulated tubing fabrication facility in Normandy is well suited to efficient fastrack fabrication where cost and quality are key. Capable of exporting quad-joints to deep draught vessels, the site is ideally situated with access to the North Sea, and the necessary industrial infrastructure provided by the Caen region. As a central European fabrication hub, with typical pipe handling equipment, the site is also available to contractors for other fabrication, for example special pieces or double jointing.

ITP’s systems can be fabricated by a local workforce in existing or bespoke facilities. ITP systems have been fabricated in Canada, USA, Peru, Chile, Scotland, UAE, Nigeria, Angola, Congo and Sultanate of Oman.
The PIP fabrication equipment is portable and can shipped and set up within the materials procurement lead times.
The fabrication equipment and processes are sufficiently robust to ensured quality, even in remote or challenging locations. The operators are trained during fabrication ramp-up, without the need for high technology or specific expertise.
ITP engineers supervise the local construction contractor to ensure system quality and construction in-line with the mechanical and thermal design intent. This can include such aspects as storage, handling, welding procedures, field-jointing, integrity testing, cold bending and finally testing and commissioning.
Quality assurance and control
Particularly for local content fabrication, ITP provides the required engineers to ensure ITP’s processes are respected by the local workforce in collaboration with the local contractor. This includes the quality assurance of insulation application, swaging, and system integration. In addition to a supervision / quality assurance role, ITP technicians provide the necessary setup and maintenance of ITP’s fabrication equipment.
ITP provides installation procedures and certified engineers or technicians for operations on the installation vessels to ensure field-jointing integrity or reduced pressure oprations.
The resin injection associated with the S- and J-lay flowline system is carried out by ITP’s field-joint team together with dedicated resin injection equipment, suited to the fast curing field-joint resin.
