Trelleborg's leg mating units supplied for China floatover project

Trelleborg’s engineered products operation has completed its first oil and gas floatover project in China, supplying a range of its floatover hardware for the BoZhong (BZ) 35-2 COOEC offshore platform in Tianjin.

Designed and fabricated by China Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC), the platform’s specification called for hardware that guaranteed reliability and safety, and required a supplier with the highest standards and a strong track record. Leg mating unit (LMU) components designed by Trelleborg were produced strictly in accordance with client design specifications and international standards.

Yang Xiaolong, Design Engineer at COOEC, said, “The industry’s demand for optimum performance and consistently reliable products, which deliver in the most challenging environments, is growing. Cheap and quick solutions just aren’t a consideration where performance may be jeopardized. And this project was no different.

“Trelleborg was able to meet the strict specifications to supply quality solutions, which had been stringently tested at their in-house facility. The company’s expert product knowledge and understanding of its applications meant that it was entirely suited for the project. Importantly, it meant that we were provided with assurance and performance throughout.”

JP Chia, Engineering Manager within the engineered products operation of Trelleborg Offshore & Construction, said, “Floatover operations carry with them huge risks and implications; should failure occur during the mating process, the project could be delayed and costs start to mount. It is because of this that Trelleborg works so hard to design and manufacture products which will meet stringent testing requirements, as failure just isn’t an option in this environment.

“We were thrilled to be chosen as supplier of choice for the mating hardware on this project, especially as it is Trelleborg’s first completed project of this kind in China.”

Vincent Tan, Sales and Marketing Manager within the engineered products operation of Trelleborg Offshore & Construction, also commented, “The industry is beginning to switch its focus towards quality and reliability, as opposed to saving costs upfront with cheap, quick-fix solutions. As a result, Trelleborg was able to demonstrate its dedication to high performance solutions, which were ideal for the BZ 35-2 project. We hope that more opportunities arise in China as a result.”
