Trelleborg to service Statoil fire protection needs

Offshore staff

KROKSTADELVA, Norway -- Trelleborg has signed a framework agreement with Statoil to delivery of passive fire protection solutions for use on flanges and bolts on the operator’s offshore installations.

All products will be manufactured at Trelleborg's plant in Krokstadelva.

The company will supply its FireNut protection system for flanges and bolts, designed to extend service life in the event of a fire. The system is said to simplify installation, inspection and maintenance of flanges and is manufactured using Trelleborg’s rubber with FireStop technology.

FireNut is claimed to prevent damage to bolt threads and reduce elongation of bolts even after direct impact from a jet fire at 1,300°C (2,372°F). The rigid design is also said to offer good resistance to mechanical damage.
