TPSMI: official sponsor of the Bar’Bars


Since 2013, TPSMI Group has been the official sponsor of the Bar’Bars, a rugby team based in Pointe-Noire, Congo.

We have accompanied them over the years and are proud to have participated to the evolution of rugby in Pointe-Noire that was undertaken by this team’s Coach: Mr.Guillaume GAY.
His initiative caught our attention since we, at TPSMI Group, share the same values as these remarkable players: team spirit, commitment, respect and courage, just to name a few.

The 40 players were divided in 2 teams for a friendly match to pay tribute to this great Coach who was encouraging them for one last time before his leave.

A wonderful initiative in a good sportsmanship that gathered rugby enthusiasts of all ages around a memorable event.

A big Bravo to the players, the Coach and the club’s President for this special moment of togetherness.

Pipe repairing following a piercing

Further to the setting of the 4 anchor points on the zone following researches and the marking of the damaged zone that led to a piercing on the pipe, we set up the hoisting equipment using lifting bags and prepared the bottom zone of the pipe to install the trestles under the sound areas before cutting the damaged part.
The pipe cutting operations went on as planned (hydraulic saw set up, cutting, damaged part evacuation) et were followed by the manufacturing of the rail ends before setting up the 2 smart flanges, then metrology for a spool piece manufacturing.
The last day was dedicated to the cuff installation and the tightening of the set.

We thank our client for its trust and great feedback on this operation.

Replacement of a weakened steel sheet

replacement of a weakened steel sheet

Further to a previous detection and repairing of a piercing several months ago for one of our clients, we undertook thickness measures in the nearby zone which revealed a fragility and a need to change a steel sheet piece.
The zone being in a part of the hull with form, we created a template allowing to raise this form in the area where the cofferdam would be placed.
The operations ended after cleaning.

Another successfully executed operation by our teams. Contact us today and we will find solutions to your challenges.

Let’s Go TPSMI!


Our values being similar to sports values, TPSMI sponsored the "RAID EDVT" race in Pointe Noire, Congo.
Over 1200 participants faced off in good spirit and among them, TPSMI teams were ready for it.

After entertaining warmups, the « raiders » started their race on the beach before heading to the bush.
15km later, the most valiant reached the finish line at the beach and the celebration started for all the participants and their close ones who enjoyed the music and activities provided by many organizations and partners.

We would like to thank the organizing committee for letting us be part of this great initiative, gathering the community around sportive and solidarity values that we hold dear.
And Bravo to our teams who held high TPSMI’s colours!

We continue our collaboration with Perenco Congo. In addition to our regular maintenance operations, our teams took care this month of an electric cable laying and a Flexstream pipe installation between two platforms.
The operation was divided in two phases:
- Structure installation to fix the cable and pipe from the surface down to -78m depth
- Releasing of the cable and the pipe
Thereafter, an electrician team tested the electric cable and the divers team performed a hydro and air test followed by a ROV survey on the pipe on the entire distance.
The Flexstream pipe was then set in his I-tubes and collars from the surface down to -60m depth on both platforms.

In Congo, we managed regular rotations and ad hoc missions of tens of teams while finding solutions for urgent requests from our clients: mission extending, mobilization/ replacement in 24hours, …

We did the same in Gabon where urgent requests were satisfied on time in order not to disrupt ongoing operations and schedules.
