A partnership in performance with Hyundai heavy industries
Drill riser buoyancy solutions
As a major supplier of offshore buoyancy equipment to a large proportion of key contractors globally, it was important to Trelleborg to have successful business relationships with the top four contractors in Korea.
The order, for drill riser buoyancy modules (DRBM) and riser protection, makes Trelleborg the only buoyancy supplier to have a business partnership with all four top contractors in Korea.
In order to reduce a drilling riser’s net weight in water, and ensure that the structure and drilling vessel are supported, Trelleborg offers a range of DRBMs, fitted around the length of the riser pipe, improving the riser’s buoyancy and protecting it from service damage.
“We believe that this achievement is down to our approach to innovation and long-standing engineering expertise. We’ve also implemented strategic changes to manufacturing operations locally and have placed a representative in the area, as part of an ongoing commitment to better serving our global customer base through local presence.” Mark Angus, President of Trelleborg Offshore based in the US
