The director of TECNUN-Faculty of Engineering, and the CEO of Tecpesa have signed an agreement in which TECNUN and Tecpesa jointly develop three R & D projects of specific products for the Oil and Gas Industry.
This work involves, on one hand, the machinery manufactured by Tecpesa to perform interventions in gas and oil pipelines without stopping the activity in the pipeline in which such intervention takes place. In this case, Tecnun brings expertise in the design area to streamline certain aspects related to operational logistics of the execution of services in different parts of the world where Tecpesa performs jobs.
On the other hand, both parties jointly develop a very specific mechanical structure that remains as part of compressor stations, used in oil and gas fields and in transportation pipelines, allowing quick access to the interior of the pipelines.
The third area of collaboration – being the area in which Tecpesa is more specialized – is the development of a product for urgent pipelines repair, which for operational reasons, cannot wait for a standard repair to follow assets.
So far Tecpesa needed for technology transfer of third companies to supply certain products to the oil and gas industry. This framework cooperation agreement between the company and the university will cut the technological dependence on third parties to move forward in the development of specialized products and services to the energy industry with its own technology.
