Trelleborg’s offshore operation has signed a framework agreement with Statoil for the delivery of Passive Fire Protection solutions for use on flanges and bolts.
Under the framework, Trelleborg will supply FireNut, a protection system for flanges and bolts used to extend service life in the event of a fire.
Trelleborg explains that the FireNut system simplifies installation, inspection and maintenance of flanges. The company notes that it is manufactured from Trelleborg’s rubber with FireStop technology. As for the products for Statoil, Trelleborg says they will be manufactured at its facility in Krokstadelva, Norway.
Jørgen Sletten, Business Group Director for Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Norway said: “We have a long history of working together with Statoil, and we believe they have seen firsthand that our products and solutions can increase efficiency and reduce costs. This framework will lay the foundation for FireNut to become a preferred bolt protection solution on all Statoil offshore installations in operation.”
