Trelleborg to exhibit at OTD 2014

Trelleborg will present an extended range of offshore solutions, including its recently re-branded portfolio of thermal insulation materials, subsea seals and LNG hoses, at the Offshore Technology Days (OTD) 2014 in Bergen, Norway.

Trelleborg’s offshore operation, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions and Trelleborg’s oil and marine hose operation will showcase a number of offshore innovations including its portfolio of thermal insulation solutions, Vikotherm™, Multi-Contact Turcon® Variseal® and LNG tandem offloading hoses.

Trelleborg’s liquefied natural gas tandem offloading system offers increased safety and flexibility with less downtime offshore, the company said in a statement.

Tandem offloading, where vessels line up stern to bow, allows vessels to keep more distance between them – 328 feet / 100 meter distance or more between FLNG vessels and LNG Containers (LNGC) – easily cope with greater wave heights. This significantly limits the risk of collision between the two vessels, enhancing safety, but also greatly simplifies naval operations in approach, berthing and residence, according to the statement.

Vincent Lagarrigue, Global LNG Manager within Trelleborg Industrial Products, comments: “Moving LNG production to an offshore setting can present serious challenges for the offshore oil and gas industry, particularly in the design and construction of a vessel. FLNG facilities need to maintain the utmost levels of safety and ensure flexibility of LNG production, while withstanding the effects of winds, waves and currents in the open seas.

With prospective FLNG locations moving away from ‘mild’ areas, to sites where environmental factors are more severe, conventional marine loading arms simply do not perform well, potentially causing shut-down in poor weather conditions.”
