For the first time, Trelleborg’s offshore operation will exhibit at the Mexican Petroleum Congress (CMP) in Guadalajara, Mexico, presenting its latest product developments. These include over bend protection, fire deluge systems and thermal insulation materials, as well as subsea buoyancy solutions for the Gulf of Mexico region.
Located on stands 200 and 409, Trelleborg’s offshore operation will present a number of advancements across its portfolio of topside and subsea products, topside Jet Fire resistant Passive Fire protection products and its innovative new vortex induced vibration (VIV) system, T-Strake.
Also on stand will be its Pemex NRF 127 approved deluge and sprinkler system, Elastopipe®, which is type approved for extreme conditions. In addition, Trelleborg will demonstrate its subsea flow control developments, including its entire line of high performance Vikotherm™ insulation materials.
Sales Manager within the Trelleborg offshore operation, Ole Bjørn Rasmussen, commented: “In offshore environments, fire safety is of the utmost importance, as the occurrence of fire can cause colossal amounts of damage and danger.
“In accordance with current legislation, corrosion-free designs will increase the reliability and safety of installations worldwide - while at the same time, reducing fire risk and downtime. In addition, this design is able to meet the developing needs and requirements of the Mexican oil and gas industry.”
T-Strake and Vikotherm™
Also available to view on stand is Trelleborg’s T-Strake, which features a unique modular design enabling more efficient transportation and installation. The advanced manufacturing process for T-Strake means they can be produced up to six times faster than systems manufactured using traditional techniques, ensuring shorter lead times.
Trelleborg’s Vikotherm™ solutions will also be demonstrated on stand. The S1 is made from non-syntactic silicone and can be cured at room temperature without exposure to air, making it resistant to cracking and shrinking. Vikotherm™ R2 offers improved elasticity, as well as enhanced process and manufacturing flexibility. Using Trelleborg’s Mobile Production Unit (MPU), the system can be applied on site, anywhere around the world, providing customers the freedom of choice, when protection of their subsea architecture is a number one priority.
