MacArtney's Record Growth in North America

MacArtney France’s new Pressure Test Facility.

Following a major expansion which saw new MacArtney offices open in every coastal corner of the North America and added several new faces to the team, MacArtney is looking to experience record breaking growth within North American markets for underwater technology. This marks a key contribution to the overall strategic ambition of the MacArtney Group to double turnover between 2010 and 2015.
This positive forecast is especially empowered by a booming oil and gas sector operating out of Houston, Texas, where the regional headquarters of MacArtney is housed.  “We are stepping up efforts to accommodate the increase in demand for complete solutions to take on complex challenges within various underwater technology related industries,” said Lars Hansen, President of MacArtney in North America, and continued: “While some of the underwater technology products and systems offered by MacArtney, like SubConn connectors, have grown to reach a position as world-leading, others, such as MERMAC and CORMAC winch and handling systems, Mac API harsh environment connectors, MacArtney NEXUS multiplexers and LUXUS Cameras and Lights hold a vast potential.”
As part of a broad response to this increase in complete solution demand, experienced industry professional Scott Allen has recently taken the helm as System Sales Manager with MacArtney in Houston. Adding further strength to the MacArtney team, MacArtney has secured the talent of Scott Walters to function as Item Sales Manager. Long-time MacArtney employee, Rafael da Costa Lima, will take on new tasks as Internal Sales/Project Manager, strengthening the ability of the Houston team to manage and deliver large projects and complex system solutions.

MacArtney Adds Pressure Test Facility

MacArtney France added a modern and fully equipped pressure test facility to its workshop in Rousset. Being unique to the French market for underwater technology, the new facility represents a notable extension of the MacArtney France service portfolio.  Empowered by the newly installed pressure vessel system with a height of 1,100 mm, an internal diameter of 650 mm and a pressure capacity of up to 600 bar - the test facility is able to submit underwater connectors, cables, moldings, junction boxes and other types of equipment to extensive ocean depth pressure tests. For optimal accuracy, the pressure vessel system is capable of preprogrammed and fully computer controlled operation with all measurements undertaken and recorded in real-time.
To ensure flexible connectivity to equipment tested inside the tank, six penetrator passes are incorporated into the vessel lid. Moreover, an overhead crane with a capacity of 4,000 kg ensures that even very heavy or unwieldy equipment can be pressure tested. The MacArtney France pressure test facility offers reinforced safety operations and is available for rental on an hourly or daily basis, with all testing performed by fully trained and certified MacArtney technicians.
