HOUSTON – IHC Merwede plans to use the Offshore Technology Conference to feature its recently launched Seven Pacific and its new Type-22 vessel. The company says it also plans to show its versatile J-Lay tower and its Hydrohammer S-1200.
“The outlook for the offshore industry in 2011 is positive. It is expected to pick up, which should lead to an increase in capital expenditure as customers need to invest in new equipment,” says Govert Hamers, IHC Merwede president. “We will be capitalising on this at OTC 2011 by highlighting some of the innovative vessels and advanced equipment which will help us to drive the market forward into 2012 and beyond.”
IHC Merwede has several offshore equipment business units for designing, constructing, assembling, commissioning, delivering, and maintaining a range of offshore equipment for the oil and gas sector. This varies from the fabrication of single parts to complete integrated systems, such as equipment for pipe and cable laying, and pile driving.
