Bringing fresh water to the world since 1968.
When the need for water exceeds natural availability, National Oilwell Varco (Flexibles) is ready to support island infrastructure, enable tourism growth and bring drinking water to where it’s needed.
We design, manufacture and sell subsea flexible pipe solutions for the water industry as well as for chemical, oil and gas applications. Our water transport pipe, AQFlex, offers opportunities for water-dependent industries to expand and for isolated communities to flourish with up to 20,000 m in one continuous length or in pipe sections with end-fitting joints. Based on an unbonded layer concept, AQFlex is approved for use with drinking water in accordance with Regulation 25 of the Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations 1989. It is typically supplied in a range of inner diameters from 2½” – 14”
