W&O Europe, a supplier throughout Europe to the marine and marine offshore markets for pipe, valves and fittings, valve automation, and engineered solutions, is now the marine industry distributor for Victaulic mechanical pipe joining solutions in Holland, Belgium, Denmark and Spain. The distribution partnership with Victaulic reflects W&O Europe’s strategic vision and commitment to become an engineered solutions provider to the European maritime industry.
“W&O Europe is excited to partner with Victaulic to bring a product to market that is approved for use in a wide variety of systems on-board numerous vessel types including container ships, cargo ships, tankers, passenger ships, workboats and FPSO/drill ships”, said Kristof Adam, managing director of W&O’s European operations. “We will also be a stocking distributor for Victaulic, resulting in more time savings to customers as we can quickly provide the products right from our own shelves.”
The Victaulic system provides pipe connections, fittings and valves and is available to be installed on a variety of pipe materials on-board vessels such as black carbon steel, galvanized pipes, Copper Nickel and stainless steel. The assembly includes four elements: the pipe groove, a gasket, the housings and nuts and bolts.
