SAN ANTONIO – Balmoral Offshore Engineering has chosen the annual Subsea Tieback Forum to announce plans for a new manufacturing facility in Brazil.

The new facility is scheduled to manufacture the company’s complete range of products from the largest deepwater riser buoyancy and insulation systems to the smaller, more intricate, elastomer moldings such as bend stiffeners, restrictors, and cable protection.

“The plant, which will be strategically located to service the South American sector, will replicate our multi-purpose facility in Aberdeen which has proved to be such an operational success in terms of flexibility and capacity,” said Jim Hamilton, international business development manager.”We anticipate the new facility being in full production by the first quarter of 2012.”
