Offshore staff

HOUSTONTrelleborg’s offshore operation has been awarded one of its largest single orders ever for drill riser buoyancy modules (DRBM) by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSMEs) in Korea.

Consisting of RiserGuard and riser buoyancy, the contract is for a four-rig package that will consist of two rigs each, for drilling companies Seadrill and Sonangol.

Mark Angus, president within Trelleborg Offshore and Construction in the US, said, “This award is the second largest single DRBM order for Trelleborg and will be manufactured and delivered out of our Houston, Texas, facility in the US over the next 15 months.”

Around 4,000 DRBMs will be supplied for the four rigs. In addition, Trelleborg will supply RiserGuard for the bare joints. RiserGuard is a bare or slick joint system designed to protect bare joints and auxiliary lines from installation and handling damage.
