$7.8-Million Hose System Order To Uniroyal —Literature Available

A $7.8-million contract to supply two new marine hose systems, for use in loading tankers anchored to offshore terminals in the Gulf of Campeche, has been awarded to Uniroyal International of Oxford, Conn., by Petroleos Mexicanos, Mexico's national petroleum production company.

It is the largest single order for marine hose ever received by Uniroyal, and is the largest such order ever given by Pemex to a U.S. company.

The two hose systems will be delivered by July 1982, and will be used at terminals loading tankers with petroleum for the U.S.

and Europe.

The systems use both flotationtype and submarine hose. The contract also calls for additional components for three offshore W r i t e 5 6 0 on Reader Service Card terminals using Uniroyal products.

Flexible hose for the systems will be manufactured at the plant of Uniroyal Manuli, Italy. The systems also employ fittings, valves, buoys, lights, navigation aids, and other items, most of which will be made in the U.S.

Uniroyal will supervise the installation.

Uniroyal said its engineers have designed and developed dozens of comparable hose systems for oil rigs, military installations, shipping terminals, and dredging sites.

All components will conform to specifications of the Oil Companies International Marine Forum, Uniroyal said.

Pemex, one of the world's leading exporters of petroleum, is expanding its facilities, including marine terminals, to accommodate steadily growing production.
