Activities in Brazil are hotting up

Uetersen, (PresseBox) - With the global economy on the way to recovery and the offshore industry growing substantially, Brazil is acting as major trailblazer in the market place. The marine equipment supplier HATLAPA has been matching the trend in recent years by increasing its activities in the offshore sector as well as making Brazil one of its geographical focus areas. In the past two years, HATLAPA appointed a new representative in Brazil - TRIDENTE - and furthermore extended its offshore product portfolio by developing special winches and deck machinery packages suitable for extreme offshore conditions.

As the market is picking up, HATLAPA is keen to make audiences aware of its expanding offshore product range, starting in Brazil. This spring, HATLAPA and its Brazilian agent TRIDENTE ran a series of technical seminars in Macaé and Rio de Janeiro in order to introduce the benefits of electrically driven winches.

The seminars were aimed at key players in the offshore industry with a technical presentation by one of the Managing Partners of HATLAPA, Dr. Alexander Nürnberg, as well as an overview of the company and general product portfolio by Stuart Bailey. With sessions held in two locations which are hubs for offshore activity, the seminars attracted local government bodies as well ship managers and builders from the surrounding areas.

More recently, HATLAPA has supplied the world's largest bulker, VALE BRASIL, with steering gear. The 40,000 ton, 360 metre long bulker is manoeuvring Brazilian waters with HATLAPA's electro-hydraulic ram type steering gear POSEIDON, working at a 2 x 35° rudder angle and with a design torque of 10,205 kNm.

Founded in 1919, HATLAPA Marine Equipment has continuously grown and presently employs over 400 staff worldwide. The company's main production facility remains in Germany, with some of its larger steering gear being manufactured in South Korea. Additional sales and service offices include China, Cyprus, Norway, Singapore, UK and USA.
