Grimsby, UK -- ContiTech subsidiary, UK-based Dunlop Oil & Marine, has been awarded two orders from the Dutch company, Bluewater Energy Service BV.
For the first order, Dunlop Oil & Marine will supply floating and submarine hoses while buoys and mooring systems will be supplied by Bluewater. The delivery will include more than 200 hoses with inside diameters ranging from 40 to 50 cm.
In the second order, Dunlop Oil & Marine will deliver floating hoses for a unique Tandem system to Marine Well Containment Company based in United States.
