The first units have now been manufactured at Twin Filter’s facilities in Brazil. To provide a better service to customers in Brazil and Latin America, Twin Filter (The Netherlands) founded Twin Filter do Brasil in 2004. We started importing consumables from the Netherlands to sell locally to our clients. Importation to Brazil can be complicated, so with local stock we can serve clients more effectively.
In 2008 Petrobras did a tender for three large filtration contracts, and the first order was awarded to Twin Filter. Twin Filter manufactured all the equipment in the Netherlands. Twin Filter do Brasil manufactured and supplied the diesel-driven pump sets and consumables. The second contract required multiple filter units and half the quantity was successfully manufactured in Rio de Janeiro.
Furthermore Shell Brasil has placed an order for two filter packages (one purchase and one rental) for treatment of slopwater at the FPSO Fluminense. Both packages are 100% manufactured at our facilities in Rio de Janeiro and will be installed offshore in July.
Twin Filter do Brasil is now ready to manufacture all your equipment locally!
