Under a clear, blue sky in Denmark’s energy capital, Esbjerg, Jonny Søtrup, Mayor, officially welcomed Welltec to the city as the roof was raised on our new manufacturing facility.
In addition to the Major, the event was attended by other dignitaries, clients, guests and Welltec employees. In his speech the Major, who also attended the opening of the US Headquarters in Katy, Texas last year, joked that Welltec should make it an annual tradition to open a new facility each year.
Although we are constantly growing and would like to achieve that challenge, Jørgen Hallundbæk, CEO, made no promises in that regard. He did say that “It is a great joy to attend this successful topping-off ceremony today with so many people who are central for our new factory as well as our new product line, which we will be producing here. Just like these new facilities will create a good and secure framework for our technologies, our Welltec Annular Barriers will create greater reliability and safety in the industry.”
“These facilities will increase our manufacturing capacity significantly and ensure we are able to deliver high quality products to the rapidly growing market demand for our completions solutions. The location in Esbjerg allows us to further develop our relations to clients and partners in the North Sea,” Jørgen Hallundbæk concluded.
The 65,000 sq ft manufacturing area will be the home of our Completions Solution offering, which currently includes the Welltec® Annular Barrier (WAB®) for cement assurance and zonal isolation. The facility will also be used as an offshore supply base and a hub for Welltec’s operations in the Danish, German and Dutch parts of the North Sea as well as land-based operations in Central Europe.
