Strohm strengthens its presence in Brazil

6 February 2019

Today, Strohm announces that Renato Bastos has joined Strohm, as Vice President Brazil, strengthening its presence in Brazil. In this role, Renato will be responsible for delivering the company’s roadmap to qualify the Thermoplastic Composite Pipeline (TCP) Riser for dynamic application in Deepwater Brazil. 

As a global leader in TCP, Strohm started a qualification programme in 2018 for dynamic TCP Risers intended to be deployed in deep water off the coast in Brazil, including for pre-salt environment. 

Oliver Kassam, CEO, comments: “Brazil is a key market for Strohm, and the TCP Riser has a unique opportunity to deliver the ultimate reward to our clients in terms of lowered total cost and overall installability benefits. With our qualification program well underway, we are glad to have Renato Bastos lead our organisation in Brazil and prepare for our future growth.”

Strohm's TCP Riser design delivers the lowest total installed cost solutions for dynamic risers in deepwater applications, whilst offering maximum flexibility to operators in terms of subsea configuration and choice of installation method. The TCP Riser developed by Strohm optimises cost with minimum bend radius and weight, using only robust and field proven materials.

Renato Bastos brings with him over 20 years experience with a strong background in the SURF market for installation of flexible pipe, having worked in number of position including Ship Operations Manager and Technical Director.  Most recently, he held the role of Projects Director of Subsea for Ocyan. With his experience, he is well positioned to lead the development and qualification work of the TCP Riser, and develop the Brazilian market, which is a strategic market for Strohm.
