TESS has started a new cooperation with Gates Engineering & Services, Gates E&S, one of the leading manufacturers of rubber hoses in the world. The British company supplies advanced-purpose quality hoses.
The drilling hoses are produced and tested in Great Britain, and are delivered according to API 7K, 16C, 16D and 17K. In addition, Gates E&S is approved according to DNV GL-OS-E101 which is the Drill Plant Specification from DNV GL for verification and approval of drilling systems on floating rigs.
Technical sales and support from TESS is located at Lier, Stavanger, Bergen, Kristiansand, Esbjerg and Aberdeen.
-Having the production in England will drastically shorten the time of delivery for these hoses, says Lars Otto Fredriksen, divisional manager for hoses and wire components at TESS.
-We are very happy about the agreement with TESS in Norway. The connections, the expertise and the enthusiasm in the company matches our own values. We are looking forward to the results of the cooperation between TESS, the oil and gas-sector, and us, says Derek Forsyth, head of sales for GATES in Europe.
Data sheets, catalogues and brochures will be available by the end of March 2019.
