Ellis Patents emperors reign in Brazil

Emperor cable cleats from leading manufacturer, Ellis Patents have been specified for installation on two oil platforms currently being built for use in the oil fields off the coast of Brazil.

Petrobras P-59 and P-60 are currently being constructed by the Consortium Rio Paraguacu in São Roque do Paraguacu, Brazil. They are self-elevating drilling rigs that are capable of drilling under conditions of high pressure and high temperature. Both are scheduled to be completed and delivered later this year. 
Eliis Patents Emperor cleats were specified through the North Yorkshire company’s Brazilian distributor and were selected because of their high fault level capability. 
Tony Conroy, Ellis Patents export sales manager, said: “Safety is paramount in any electrical installation, but when the installation in question is going to operate in some of the harshest environments and dangerous conditions in the world it is absolutely vital that every step is taken to safeguard against any potential problems.”
“Our Emperor cleats are specifically designed for this kind of project and have been fully tested so that those installing them can do so with the knowledge that the cables they are being used to restrain will remain safely restrained during any short circuit situation.” 
Ellis Patents has enjoyed significant export success in the oil and gas markets in recent years. This has included repeat orders for elements of the Kashagan project in Kazakhstan, major orders for an FPSO and FPU for use in Brazil’s Peregrino and Roncador fields respectively, and a recent order for its Emperor cleats for use in the Aseng old field development off the coast of Equatorial Guinea.
