From a geographical point of view the contract covers four territories: The west of the country, the southwest, the south east and part of the east. The alliance with a partner has allowed to cover the whole territories of the contract. The effectiveness of the contract starts by January 2019 to December 2020 and with an extension to December 2021.
Tecpesa has also received a temporary homologation for a new equipment developed specifically for GrdF. Awaiting the final homologation during the next year 2019, Tecpesa France and TPSO are allowed to start activities for the new contract with this new equipment.
During the two first quarters of 2018. Tecpesa France has set up a service center in the Bordeaux area. This service center has been updated with all the new equipment to allow all the team perform simultaneously up to three in line interventions at the same time along the French territory.
