SMI and GISMA’s Partnership goes from strength to strength
SMI Business Development Managers spent 2 days recently at GISMA – our subsea connector specialist partners in Germany at their Neumünster head offices. We’ve been the UK partner of GISMA for more than 20 years and are always happy to see their latest developments and discuss future opportunities.
Like SMI, GISMA are never happy to sit on their laurels and are constantly innovating new solutions for the most hostile connectivity environments. During the recent annual supplier audit we were also able to partake in training on the latest Series 16 range of connectors for Oil and Gas applications.
With the system connectors being designed for a 25 year product lifecycle and the electrical round connectors fully meeting the requirements of the US offshore specification API 16D and 17E, this Series is really outstanding. The dry mate series 16 connectors are specifically designed for long-term use and are fitted with the proven insulator principle of Series 10.
With this great new Series and our shared development goals, it’s no wonder we continue to enjoy such a fruitful working partnership – here’s to the next 20 years!
