High quality communication, understanding and support for local customers
Richard Beesley, Commercial Director of Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Brazil, comments: “We understand that our presence in Brazil is vital to providing high quality communication, understanding and support for our local customers. Since our customers are hugely important to us, we are investing in training and developing our Brazil-based teams to support the growing needs of the region.”
Trelleborg has secured a contract to supply Drill Riser Buoyancy Modules (DRBM) for drill ships that will operate in Brazil in Q2 2016 and is scheduled for delivery from late 2015 into early 2016 to one of the major leading drilling companies in the world.
Drill Riser Buoyancy Modules (DRBMs)
Beesley continues: “This contract firmly establishes Trelleborg as a leading supplier of Drill Riser Buoyancy Modules for the Brazilian new build market. Through our ongoing focus and investment in ground breaking innovation, technology and skilled personnel, we strive to perform at every level to meet our customer’s needs globally.
“This is a continuation of our long-standing commitment to developing innovative products and sophisticated materials designed specifically to exceed market requirements and meet the demands of increasing service depths for the global offshore drilling segment.”
In order to reduce a drilling riser’s net weight in water, and ensure that the structure and drilling vessel are supported, Trelleborg offers tailor made DRBMs which are fitted around the length of the riser pipe, improving the riser’s buoyancy and protecting it from service damage.
