Claxton wins prestigious award for innovation
Claxton, alongside Acteon group sister companies, 2H Offshore and Subsea Riser Products (SRP) have scooped a prestigious innovation award for our collective work on world-first full bore high pressure drilling riser technology for Venture Production PLC.
The award, presented by the East of England Energy Group (eeegr), saw Claxton beating seven other contenders with diverse technologies ranging from transparent photo voltaic glass to a system for creating petrol and diesel from waste plastic.
The new riser, born from aligning the unique experience found within Acteon companies, uses shrink fit flange technology to effectively negate the issues inherent in working with HPHT-grade materials.
In collecting the award, Laura Claxton praised the passion and commitment of the inter-company team that worked on the riser with Venture, and thanked eeegr for their ongoing support of the energy industry in the eastern region.
