Distribution agreement signed between Ti Marine Contracting and Trident Maritime Systems
Ti Marine Contracting (TIMC) and Trident Maritime Systems; IMECO Division (Trident) have established a distribution agreement to cover the North American market for the TIMC portfolio of cryogenic insulation products and services.
The energy picture in the United States has changed dramatically in the past few years from a coal solution to a natural gas solution. This change is the driving force behind investment in infrastructure for transport of LNG and other natural gas liquids (NGLs). Insulation is essential to maintain the products at temperatures as low as -200 degrees Fahrenheit and there is a significant demand in North America for cryogenic insulation of the pipes and tanks used to transport and store LNG and NGLs.
"Ti Marine Contracting has delivered cryogenic insulation solutions for decades and enjoys the market leading position in our European and Asian markets," said Tom Stark, Director TIMC. He added, "We are well positioned to build on this success in the North American market."
Trident’s IMECO Division and TIMC's parent company, Callenberg Technology Group have been business partners for many years. This distribution agreement builds upon that successful partnership. Trident will drive marketing activity and provide project management support for insulation projects delivered within North America.
Pete Anderson, Vice President Business Development added, "This new market has created a demand for reliable, cost effective insulation technology. We are pleased that we can collaborate with a proven market leader in this specialist field. TIMC’s innovative RG™ pipe insulation solutions have saved plant operators in the UK millions of dollars in design and construction costs. During this period of low energy prices, we see great potential for that technology to be an enabling factor in the design and construction of lower cost pipelines and storage facilities.”
