Renato will be responsible for delivering the company’s roadmap to qualify the Thermoplastic Composite Pipeline (TCP) riser for dynamic application in deepwater Brazil.

Most recently, he held the role of projects director of Subsea for Ocyan.
Oliver Kassam, CEO, said: “Brazil is a key market for Airborne Oil & Gas, and the TCP riser has a unique opportunity to deliver the ultimate reward to our clients in terms of lowered total cost and overall installability benefits. With our qualification program well underway, we are glad to have Renato Bastos lead our organisation in Brazil and prepare for our future growth.”
