Joint integrity specialist Hydratight has announced new appointments to its Morgrip connector team.
Morgrip is the unique weldless topside and subsea pipeline connector developed by Hydratight and in use around the world.
New to the development and sales team are:
Sales and projects coordinator Alok Pandey, who has extensive experience in purchasing, logistics and project administration; project engineer Ali Naqvi, who has design and project engineering experience from the management of global cryogenics projects, industrial equipment and environmental services; new connectors sales manager and chartered mechanical engineer James Rowley, who has years of experience with subsea products in the world oil and gas market, and Morgrip design engineer Simon Townsend, who joins the company’s global engineering team and has extensive experience gained in automotive, metal processing, waste water projects and subsea intervention handling systems.
The quartet will be based at Hydratight’s head office in Walsall, UK and will join a continuing drive by the company to increase sales of connector products worldwide.
“We plan to concentrate on increasing sales of our standard Morgrip products for topside applications and on developing more specialised subsea applications, and Alok, Ali, James and Simon will be a big part of the renewed focus,” said connectors product manager Paul Hughes.
NB: Morgrip is a mechanical pipe connector used to replace the need for the welding of topside and subsea pipes in oil and gas, and petrochemical applications. The Morgrip product has over 20 years of proven leak-free service history for permanent usage, and can be used for all sizes and pressure ratings of metal pipes, in critical and non-critical service.
