Trelleborg has signed a framework agreement with Statoil for the supply of Elastopipe™, corrosion protection, Passive Fire Protection (PFP) and Thermal Insulation (Vikotherm R2, S1 and P7). The framework agreement is signed for six years.
Hans Leo Hals, Managing Director for Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Norway, commented: “We are very proud that Statoil has chosen to sign a framework agreement with us for our core products and solutions. Our proven technologies, leading materials and long experience have made us an important supplier in the oil and gas market, and we are looking forward to building our relations further with Statoil in a challenging, but yet exciting market. ”
Elastopipe™ is the first corrosion-free, explosion, impact and jet fire resistant flexible piping system. Typical applications are deluge and sprinkler systems, utility and drain water systems, nitrogen distribution systems and chemicals and hydrocarbon transportation. The system is made of synthetic rubber with a robust design that gives the system high tolerance to impact, jet fire (+2552 °F / +1400 °C for one hour), explosion and water hammer. It is lightweight, durable and easy to cut, fit and install – with no hot work.
Passive Fire Protection solutions from Trelleborg’s offshore operation are protecting topside equipment and structures, provides time to evacuate people, close down critical equipment and for responders to gain control of the fire. Trelleborg’s PFP material FireStop™ can be used for different topside applications to ensure safety comes first. FireStop™ is non-corroding and can withstand jet fires with a heat flux of 390 kW/m2, temperatures above +2552 °F / +1400 °C and flame speeds that exceed the speed of sound.
