The 11th COTEQ (Conference on Equipment Technology) took place in the Enotel Resort & Spa Porto
de Galinhas from the10th to 13th May 2011.|
This is the first time that this conference has been held in the city of Suape, located in the north Brazilian
state of Pernambuco. The National and State governments are investing heavily in Suape, creating a
new seaport, shipyards and refineries. It is estimated that 30,000 new jobs have been created since the
start of the construction of the port, with more jobs on the horizon.
One of the focus points of COTEQ is to present new NDT technologies to service providers. Many of
the most important NDT companies where represented, from service providers to end users alike.
Michael Ulott our newly appointed Applications Advisor was present at the show and he commented, I
had the opportunity to visit most of the companies that own AGR equipment in Brazil, I also had a good
opportunity to reinforce a new distributor partnership with Kubika, which AGR is currently negotiating an
agreement for commercial representation in Brazil.
Taking the opportunity of sharing Kubikas booth, we were able to present our product range to several
interested customers with an emphasis on Phased Array and TOFD. Corrosion Mapping and the
versatility of combined sectorial and electronic scans were of particular interest to the visitors.
