Landing String Solutions has signed an agreement with Trelleborg’s offshore operation for Trelleborg to manufacture its landing string buoyancy system featuring 100% composite materials.
Through this agreement, both companies are said to be aiming to market the solution to a wider customer base globally.
Chris von Eberstein, vice president, Landing String Solutions LLC, says: “Trelleborg’s offshore operation did an excellent job qualifying the materials for the landing string buoyancy application and manufactured the first system for us, which was successfully deployed in the Gulf of Mexico. We decided to continue working with Trelleborg based on the success of the first system in addition to their global brand recognition and high quality manufacturing processes. We are looking forward to working together to aggressively promote the system and encourage implementation in the market.”
Antony Croston, business group director with Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Houston says: “The Landing String Solutions full system was deployed successfully in 2016, proving the robust nature of the design and delivering the anticipated results. Our new agreement opens up opportunities for us to work together to maximize awareness and expand this exciting new market.”
