Dynamic bend stiffeners

Dynamic bend stiffeners provide localised stiffening for umbilicals and flowlines in demanding applications. They are designed to protect the minimum bend radius (MBR) inflicted by flexing while under axial loads and also to prevent fatigue failure.

The end steelwork on dynamic stiffeners is custom-designed and fully encapsulated to connect with the matching project hardware.

Balmoral’s proprietary manufacturing capability means that stiffeners of virtually any size can be produced.
