Trelleborg scoops gold award

Trelleborg gold

Skelmersdale-based Trelleborg has won gold at the very first Oil & Gas Engineering Product of the Year awards.

The awards recognise the the best products introduced to the market between January 2016 and July 2017, and Trelleborg won the with its new Standardized Buoyancy Module which helps offshore workers operate under water.

A modular redesign of the Distributed Buoyancy Module, the SBM allows smaller elements to be stacked together, enabling customised uplift requirements as specified for each project.

The SBM can be adjusted to operate in seawater depths from surface to 2,500 meters by selecting the appropriate qualified buoyancy system. The design includes synthetic feet to the bottom of the finished assembly to prevent handling damage and reduce vessel installation time.

Jonathan Fox, senior product development engineer with Trelleborg’s offshore operation, said: “We are honored to receive the Product of the Year Gold Award for our innovative Standardized Buoyancy Modules, which is specifically developed to reduce lead times for customers.

“It is especially gratifying knowing that the readers of Oil & Gas Engineering magazine voted our innovation as the best oil and gas solution submitted this year.”

The 2017 Product of the Year awards will be presented to the winners at the 2018 Engineering Awards in Manufacturing dinner in April.
