Fife-based Cactus Industrial showcased its cost saving surface preparation technology to the oil and gas sector at Offshore Europe.

Rounding off a successful first year in business, Fife-based Cactus Industrial showcased its cost-saving surface preparation techniques for the oil and gas sector at the SPE Offshore Europe Conference and Exhibition 2015. 

Business Gateway Fife Advisor Lynne Baillie, assisted Cactus Industrial in obtaining financial support through Fife Council Economic Development’s Market Development Programme to secure their own stand at the major annual event, which took place in Aberdeen between 8-11 September.     Together with manufacturer Monti GmbH, Cactus provided live demonstrations of the bristle blaster technique, which generated much interest from delegates. 

Jamie Gallagher of Cactus Industrial, said: 

“Offshore Europe provided a superb opportunity for us to showcase our bristle blaster technique to a large audience from the oil and gas sector. It was a key event in our business development strategy.”
Gordon Cairns of Cactus Industrial said:

“We’re delighted with the level of interest from the event and whilst it’s too early to say, we’re optimistic that our attendance will help us to meet our goals.”

Whilst originally intended for the removal of corrosion and protective coatings, the bristle blasting process has now proven to be efficient in the removal of fire protection systems and thermal sprayed aluminium.
Cactus also took the opportunity to highlight the importance of training operators of the bristle blaster machine.
