and now, with a bit more hair ...
Talking of Haycoxs and Riser Clamps, here is a group of miscreants off the west coast of Africa who look a lot happier than they probably are. On the left are Josh Haycox and Ivan Hess who were in the Republic of Congo Brazzaville on a mission to assist with training and application using Enviropeel on riser clamps for Total.
Ivan is Technical Manager for Enviropeel USA, based in Indianapolis where he works closely with EUSA President, Kenny Boehm on product and business development for the whole of the Americas. A regular visitor to Chile and Peru, this was Ivan's first trip to Africa.
Josh, who represents a third generation of the Haycox family working to save the world from corrosion, was sent out from the UK to meet up with Ivan in Pointe-Noire. They travelled offshore to the Total platform for Actemium Oil and Gas where they successfully completed the project using Enviropeel equipment supplied by Corrosion Coating Systems of Louisiana.
The second photo shows the platform from the air, although Ivan and Josh travelled the 40 or so miles to the platform by sea in a 'Surfer', a relatively small service vessel used to supply oil and gas installations in the area.
