Generation of energy from both conventional sources, such as oil and gas, and renewable sources, such as sun and wind, contribute substantially to global gross national product. Tapping into different energy sources is becoming ever more complex, as deposits exploited by conventional means are becoming increasingly scarce. Deep-sea oil production, exploitation of shale gas deposits and offshore wind parks are the most well-known examples of the high level innovation in this industry. Conditions for exploiting energy sources are forever changing, and the requirements, particularly with regard to materials used, are becoming ever more challenging.
Based on traditional surface finishing processes having been established in the oil industry for decades, SurTec's specialist team continues to develop innovative surface finishes, in cooperation with various industry partners, which address the changing conditions in the industry.
