Trelleborg increases Brazilian presence

Trelleborg will be showcasing its extensive product portfolio at the leading biannual oil and gas industry event, Rio Oil and Gas in Brazil, September 17 - 20 at booth 430/431.

The company develops and manufactures bonded hose solutions for the offshore transport of crude oil and petroleum products for terminals worldwide.

The Group will exhibit a number of new technologies at the exhibition, including the next generation of its well-established Vikotherm subsea thermal insulation material, innovative spring-energized seals designed for use in severe and unpredictable downhole environments where complex blends of caustic chemicals are found, and specially designed oil hoses for CALM buoy, deep-sea and gas applications.

“Rio Oil and Gas provides the ideal platform for us to bring our pioneering solutions for challenging applications directly to the people who can benefit from them most in this up and coming region,” says Oil and Gas Segment Manager for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Americas, Eric Bucci. “We are excited to be able to showcase the Trelleborg Group as a whole at what is set to be a great event for everyone.”

In September 2012, Trelleborg opened a new offshore facility in Macaé that boasts the largest privately owned hydrostatic pressure testing vessel in the world. In 2011, through its Trelleborg Engineered Systems business area, Trelleborg acquired a business that focuses on specially designed oil hoses for surface and deep-sea applications located in Santana de Parnaíba. Trelleborg will be inaugurating this and a new co-located facility for its printing solutions in October 2012.
