Tesla NanoCoatings announces the appointment of Norwegian Drilling Group (NDG) as sales agent and distributor for its Teslan products in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Tesla NanoCoatings and Norwegian Drilling Group will launch a new class of corrosion protection coatings targeting the oil and shipping industries.
Offshore wind towers are another market for Tesla NanoCoatings’ corrosion protection products.
Corrosion in the oil, shipping and offshore wind industries is a major maintenance issue that can severely hamper operations. Tesla NanoCoatings’ products utilize carbon nanotechnology to prevent corrosion and extend the life of platforms and equipment as well as ships and turbine towers.
“We are very excited to partner with Norwegian Drilling Group to change the corrosion landscape,” said Todd Hawkins, Tesla NanoCoatings president and CEO. “NDG’s considerable resources will allow us to quickly penetrate the oil drilling markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.”
“Teslan, which is a two-coat process rather than the traditional three-coat process, will enable us to significantly reduce our customers’ maintenance costs. In the current environment of lower oil prices, maintenance savings is critical,” said Egil Lauvsland, NDG’s Group CEO, Norway and the U.S.
Tesla NanoCoatings and Norwegian Drilling Group will work to introduce Teslan coatings to NDG’s customers like BP and Saudi Aramco.
