Tesla NanoCoatings appoints Middle East sales agent
Tesla NanoCoatings has announced 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, according to a press release.
Corrosion in these industries is a major maintenance issue that can severely hamper operations. Tesla NanoCoatings' products utilise carbon nanotechnology to prevent corrosion and extend the life of oil platforms and equipment as well as ships.
"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."
Norwegian Drilling Group is one of the largest operations and service companies supporting the oil and shipping industry and counts many of the major oil companies in the world as its customers.
"We are pleased to be representing Tesla NanoCoatings and introducing its award-winning carbon nanotechnology to our customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa," said Egil Lauvsland, NDG's group CEO, Norway and the US.
“Teslan is a two-coat process rather than the traditional three-coat process, which will enable us to significantly reduce our customers' maintenance costs,” Lauvsland added, “In the current environment of lower oil prices, maintenance savings is critical."
Tesla NanoCoatings and Norwegian Drilling Group will work to introduce Teslan coatings to NDG's customers like BP and Saudi Aramco.
