Trelleborg debuts at AOG (Australia)

Swedish Trelleborg will, for the first time, attend the Australasian Oil and Gas Exhibition in Perth, Australia and showcase its latest advances in subsea solutions.

Located on stand B5, the company’s offshore unit will present a number of advancements in its flowline protection solutions including its T-Strake, which it describes as an innovative new vortex induced vibration (VIV) system as well as subsea flow control developments, including its entire line of high performance Vikotherm™ insulation materials.

Key Account Manager within Trelleborg Offshore, Iain Green, commented: “In increasingly rougher seas, pipelines unsupported over free spans are prone to VIV fatigue. This is a growing concern as VIV can lead to serious issues such as pipe girth weld failure or premature pipe malfunction. We designed our T-Strake flowline protection to suppress the effects of these vibrations on pipes to avoid damage and downtime.

“Similarly, our Vikotherm™ insulation range ensures superior joint strength, reduced thermal conductivity and increased heat capacity, as well as flexibility and resistance to hydrostatic collapse down to more than 3,000 meters. As environments offshore grow harsher and exploration is going deeper, the need for thermal insulation solutions to perform in these extreme environments becomes increasingly more important.

“As first time participants in this exhibition, we look forward to giving visitors a firsthand look at our innovative subsea solutions for this developing geographic region.”

Also available to view on stand, Trelleborg says T-Strake features a unique modular design enabling more efficient transportation and installation. The innovative manufacturing process for T-Strake means they can be produced up to six times faster than systems manufactured using traditional techniques, ensuring shorter lead times, the company has said.

Vikotherm™ S1 is made from non-syntactic silicone and can be cured at room temperature without exposure to air, making it resistant to cracking and shrinking. Vikotherm™ R2 offers improved elasticity, as well as enhanced process and manufacturing flexibility. Using Trelleborg’s Mobile Production Unit (MPU), the system can be applied on site, anywhere around the world, Trelleborg explains.
