Trelleborg Signs Framework Agreement with i-Tech Services, part of Subsea 7
Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation in Rochdale, England, has signed a framework agreement with i-Tech Services, a Subsea 7 company, to deliver buoyancy products for remotely operated vehicles (ROV). This is the first formal framework agreement for the supply of ROV buoyancy, which covers the Centurion HD and QX vehicles.
David Clayton, Sales Director for Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation in Rochdale, says: “We are very proud that i-Tech Services has chosen to sign a framework agreement with us for our buoyancy products and solutions. Our proven technologies, leading materials and long experience have made us an important supplier in buoyancy materials for ROV’s, and we are looking forward to building our relations further.”
Trelleborg manufactures a range of syntactic foams used for buoyancy on ROVs and unmanned submersibles. The TG Grade syntactic foam is lightweight and economical for use on manned and remote operating vehicles.
The framework agreement will cover Trelleborg’s buoyancy packs which are rated for 3,000 metres sea water service depth using TG26/3000 core material with the opportunity to add other TG grades as needed. The low density TG26 material ensures maximum uplift is generated per vehicle and has increased payload capabilities.
