Trelleborg to showcase fire protection and thermal insulation materials at CMP

Elastopipe 2 Trelleborg Offshore galleryTrelleborg’s offshore operation will be showcasing its latest solutions including passive fire protection and thermal insulation materials for the Gulf of Mexico region at the Congreso Mexicano del Petroleo (CMP) from 19-22 June in Leon, Mexico

The operation will highlight its portfolio of topside and subsea products including its topside Jet Fire resistant Passive Fire Protection (PFP) products.

The company’s Pemex NRF 127 approved deluge and sprinkler system, Elastopipe, which is approved for extreme conditions will also be on stand along with the company’s Vikotherm insulation materials for subsea flow control.

Ole Bjørn Rasmussen, sales manager for Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Norway, said, “With recent developments in Mexico, we are committed to continuing our work in educating and developing specifications aimed at improving fire safety solutions used in harsh offshore environments. In offshore environments, fire safety is of the utmost importance, as the occurrence of fire on any structure can endanger onboard personnel and cause extensive damage to assets.”

“By specifying effective and reliable passive fire protection systems for offshore oil and gas platforms, operators in Mexico can increase the safety of personnel and offshore assets, while at the same time reducing risks, the possibility of event escalation and production downtime. We believe that ensuring safety onboard any production facility is absolutely vital to minimising fire hazards and is a major priority for the region,” he added.

On stand solutions at CMP:

FireNut is a lightweight, easy to install protection for bolted connections or flanges on offshore installations. It specifically protects just the nuts of a bolted connection or flange and extends the service life in the event of a fire.

Vikodeck is designed to provide surface protection against blast, jet and pool fire in harsh offshore oil and gas environments. It provides protection against corrosion and anti-fatigue damping support for employees comfort and safety.

Elastopipe is a patented flexible piping system developed for transporting a variety of fluids and is the first corrosion-free, explosion, impact and jet fire resistant flexible piping system approved for offshore deluge systems.

Vikotherm is a range of wet insulation materials used to prevent the formation of hydrate plugs and wax build-up in subsea structures.
