BOLLINGTON, UKTrelleborg has won its Licença Municipal de Operação (LMO) certification – a municipal license that permits the company to manufacture in Brazil. As a result, Trelleborg has received and delivered its first order for its Vikotherm PT thermal insulation tape, manufactured at its Brazil facility.

Richard Beesley, business group director within Trelleborg Offshore & Construction in Brazil, said, “Receiving an LMO license is an important step for Trelleborg, one which completes the startup of Trelleborg’s manufacturing facility for offshore products and enables us to commence local production. With our offshore operation’s first contract win in the region already complete, there are also others well under way.”

Vikotherm is part of the growing suite ofsubsea ancillary products, which Trelleborg can manufacture in Macaé. Further to Trelleborg’s first order in Brazil, it has also recently secured two additional contracts for drill riser buoyancy module (DRBM) strings.
