Suretank Latin America has entered into a partnership agreement with Pinamak aimed at dramatically reducing operating costs in the transportation of chemicals to offshore platforms.

The partnership between Suretank Latin America, a leading manufacturer of offshore chemical tanks, and Pinamak, the longest established offshore logistics company in the Campos Basin,  marks a significant change for offshore chemical tank operators in Brazil.  

Companies can now access sites near the embarkation points where decontamination, washing, storage and filling of their transport chemical tanks can take place saving valuable time and reducing transportation costs.

Marco Pfeifer commenting on the new partnership said:  "This is the result of two years of research and development studying the Brazilian market in order to devise the best way to reduce operating costs for companies working in the oil and gas market.

"For the first time we can offer chemical companies a complete solution to their offshore requirements. "

Pinamak has a licensed area of general warehouses with more than 30,000 m² in Macaé (RJ).

Suretank has the largest number of DNV 2.7-1 certified products and, in Brazil, works within NORMAM 5 (Brazilian Navy's requirement for operation with dangerous cargoes in the offshore market).

Suretank has design and manufacturing facilities in Ireland, UK, Poland, Thailand, Brazil, USA and China as well as sales offices in USA, UK, Thailand, Australia and Brazil.
