New GMPHOM prototype approved

Another prototype has just passed all relevant tests at EMSTEC facility

EMSTEC can proudly say their newly designed 24’’ floating single carcass hose has been successfully approved by DNV this week. After the engineering phase earlier this year the actual production took place in the beginning of March. Everything ran smoothly and after a series of tests, the final bursting of the hose took place in the middle of April.
EMSTEC managing director Martin Kunzig said after the perfect test result: “With this achievement, we are keen to see our GMPHOM hoses in the field more often. They are and always have been highly reliable and designed for a long service life. We would like to thank our colleagues at our facility in China who have manufactured a state of the art rubber hose. “
