SÃO PAULO, Brazil – Trelleborg has opened a new marine hose facility in Brazil. The plant, in Santana de Parnaiba near São Paulo, covers 15,000 sq. m (161,458 sq. ft.) and will be shared with Trelleborg’s printing solutions.
In September, Trelleborg inaugurated a newly constructed facility in Macaé to manufacture polymer-based solutions for offshore topside and subsea oil and gas exploration, such as insulation tape and buoyancy products. The new facility boasts the largest hydrostatic pressure testing vessel in the world, says Trelleborg.
