Trelleborg’s offshore operation is committed to continuing its work in Mexico to help educate and develop specifications aimed at improving fire safety solutions used in harsh offshore environments. To this end, Hans Leo Hals, managing director for Trelleborg’s offshore operation based in Norway, met with leading oil and gas representatives in Mexico over a number of months to support improving the safety of Mexico’s offshore assets in the Gulf of Mexico.
Hans Leo said, "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. In its third year, Trelleborg’s safety education initiative for the Gulf of Mexico focuses on helping develop specifications aimed at improving fire safety solutions used in harsh offshore environments.
“By specifying effective and reliable passive fire protection systems for offshore oil and gas platforms, Mexico can increase the safety of personnel and offshore assets, while at the same time reducing risks, event escalation and production downtime. We believe that ensuring safety onboard any production facility is absolutely vital to reducing the risk of fire hazards and is a key priority for the region.”
Trelleborg has completed its first two projects in Mexico focused on improving safety for offshore assets in the Gulf of Mexico. The first project was for the manufacture and installation of 530 m of Elastopipe for the Nohoch A-01 platform and the second for the manufacture and installation of Elastopipe on the Abkatun Alpha compression platform. Both projects were completed on time, within budget, and without any safety incidents.
