Skin-Effect Heating Systems

An optimal solution for heating extra long pipelines

Skin-effect heating systems are reliable and efficient solutions for pipelines of any length designed for aboveground, buried, subsea, and downhole application in safe and hazardous areas.


  • Stable heat transfer at any point of the heated surface
  • Reduced thermal aging of insulation
  • Stable system functioning due to the cable channel acting as a heating element with a 100% contact with the heated surface
  • Easy to control system parameters as only one cable / cable channel is required
  • Easy to maintain due to the serviceable connections
