SINGAPORE –Trelleborg has supplied leg mating unit pads to Hyundai Heavy Industries for use on the first floatover offshore West Africa at the DSO Escravos Gas Project.

Trelleborg also supplied surge fenders, shock pads, and rubstrips.

“Sea conditions are particularly rough in this region, meaning that the installation had to be very precise and the time frame in which the floatover process could be conducted, would be minimal,” said SM Lee, section chief of Engineering Group at HHI. “As such, we needed a solution that could handle the challenging environments, preventing the jacket and topside from being damaged during installation. Trelleborg’s floatover technology integrated well with our products and provided a successful floatover.”
