Powered by wave energy
The MGP (Marine Growth Preventer) rings offer a permanent solution for control of Marine Growth. A clean surface is maintained since the rings are specially designed to withstand the rough environment in the splash zone and subsea.
The MGP rings both remove existing marine growth and prevent their regrowth, where it is most prolific. They are used for monopiles, vertical diagonals and vertical members including conductors, risers, caissons and jacket legs.
Simple, reliable & low-cost
Marine Growth Preventer rings are a reliable and low-cost engineering solution, powered solely by waves, current forces and its buoyancy. The repeated up and down motion powered by wave energy prevents the settlement and formation of biofouling and keep the surfaces free of marine growth.
The MGP rings are a great example of technology and nature working effectively together to strengthen and protect offshore installations.
Each MGP ring consists of modular plastic components linked by pivotal connections. This enables the size of the MGP rings to be easily modified to accommodate structures of any diameter. The MGP rings can be linked together by vertical plastic linkages, forming a durable and flexible framework, and then called MGP multiple rings.
