FlexSILon® PMC solutions expanding in Latin America region

Today, Latin America, as one of the fastest growing markets pose both new challenges and new opportunities for HIMA particularly in oil & gas market including safety critical applications. This is especially evident in the case of FlexSILon® PMC solutions where strong intersubsidiary cooperation and knowledge sharing resulted in market expansion and global positioning.

HIMA Slovakia in cooperation with HIMA America has been awarded a significant project by Bechtel to install Pipeline Application SoftwareFLOWorX for Escondida Water Supply Project in Chile. The project involves the installation of leak detection system for two parallel 42-inch pipelines of total length 177km transporting desalinated water from Puerto Coloso, to currently the highest producing copper mine in the world- Minera Escondida.

Another piece of evidence of powerful cooperation between HIMA Slovakia and HIMA Colombia is in a form of contract awarded by TECNA, a global EPC company, to install Pipeline Application Software FLOWorX for Plus Petrol in Peru. The project is unique in that it requires design and configuration of leak detection and location system on pipelines transporting different types of products mainly oil, diesel and gas.

We are very pleased to be initiating these new projects in our key regions of focus. Our longstanding experience in pipeline management and control solutions  positions HIMA to respond quickly to new and current customer requirements in Latin America region.
