EUSA have been working for a number of years with partners in Mexico to qualify Alocit and Enviropeel products with PEMEX, the state-owned oil company of Mexico. Recently, they sold an MA25 machine and Enviropeel material to TECHINT, an enormous global construction company based in Argentina. The equipment and material were destined for Coatzacoalcos in southern Mexico for a PEMEX project involving many kilometers of natural gas pipelines and five gas compression stations.
PEMEX specified Enviropeel to be used in a large number of bolted flanges and valve assemblies at these stations. Paint applied within the past year of construction was already failing in many of these assemblies due to high levels of humidity and salt from the proximity of the ocean. As we all know, paint does not work well in complex bolted assemblies - even in less extreme environments.
Four applicators were trained on site by EUSA over 4 days on actual assemblies within the plant. As you can see in the photos, most of the training was conducted on smaller flanges and valve assemblies but other much larger flanges are due to be protected at the site.
We anticipate much more Enviropeel will be necessary to complete this project and hope that this project will help establish our products in Mexico ... and for PEMEX.
