Trelleborg to Set Up New Production Line for Subsea Market Materials

Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Norway is expanding its production capability with a new manufacturing line.

The addition will complement its current range of thermal insulation materials by adding fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) powder coating and polypropylene (PP) to its portfolio.

Hans Leo Hals, managing director of Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Norway, said: “We are very excited to expand our offerings to our customers with additional materials and a wider product range. The new materials complement our current activities and ensures we continue to focus on our customers first, allowing us to offer the optimum solution based on customers’ project requirements, meeting their cost and performance needs.”

In addition, to establish and operate the new production line initiative, Trelleborg will strengthen its team with two new hires. Namely, Eirik Simonsen and Adam Jackson, will take on the roles of Thermal Insulation Business Group director and technical manager.

Simonsen said: “I am delighted to work on establishing the new production line and look forward to introducing new materials to our customers. It is extremely important to meet customer needs and we believe we are now better equipped to do so.”

The new production line will be built at Trelleborg’s facility based in Krokstadelva, Norway and is planned to initially occupy 1,000 square meters. The initiative will add FBE powder coating and PP material options to the facilities range of Vikotherm thermal insulation materials including rubber, silicone, glass syntactic polyurethane and solid polyurethane. The manufacturing line should be in production from quarter one of 2017.
