Pipeotech gears up for global DeltaV-Seal growth with Barter and Næss
Pipeotech has made two senior additions to its team as it looks to create awareness of its revolutionary, 100% leak-proof DeltaV-Seal and meet growing demand across a broad range of global industries. The Oslo and Tvedestrand, Norway-based business has recruited Peter Barter in the role of Head of Marketing and Christoffer Næss as Design and Product Engineer.
Setting new standards
The DeltaV-Seal is unique. A CNC-manufactured one-piece metal gasket, it adapts to fit to flanges when installed forming a perfect, and permanent, seal. Designed to withstand both cryogenic conditions and extreme high temperatures, it is gas-tight, fire and blow out safe, will not disintegrate over the long-term and never needs re-tightening. The seal was type-approved by DNV GL in 2015.
CEO Henrik Sollie believes it is a ‘game-changing’ product that, by investing in building a team of specialists, Pipeotech can roll out worldwide, delivering huge benefits through multiple industrial applications.
– "To build any company you need more than outstanding products and services, you also need the best people"

He comments: “The DeltaV-Seal is the solution our customers have been waiting for, offering complete pipe integrity, full stop. No more fugitive leaks, enhanced safety and environmental standards, and more efficient, economical and profitable operations. It is industry proven and ready for adoption through sectors ranging from oil and gas, to chemical processing, maritime, and food and drink production, to name a few. This simple innovation can deliver transformative benefits.
“But to build any company you need more than outstanding products and services, you also need the best people – and that’s what I believe we have in Peter and Christoffer. Peter will help engage with our target audiences and communicate exactly how we can help their businesses, while Christoffer will use his experience and industry understanding to create new solutions that are customized for individual customer requirements. This is an exciting stage in Pipeotech’s development and I’d like to welcome them both to our growing team.”
Barter is a UK native with extensive senior marketing experience from roles in London and running his own digital marketing consultancy in Norway, while Næss joins from industrial engineering firm Otechos where he built up specialist competency in metal-to-metal sealing design. He will now work closely with CTO Jarle Ribler.
Ribler says of his latest team member: “Hiring someone of Christoffer’s calibre is a massive boost. It gives us the resources and in-house experience we need to deliver new solutions that, thanks to his in-depth understanding of customer needs, are tailored to satisfy and exceed requirements.”
Barter, meanwhile, will form a close working relationship with Sollie himself, who adds: “Peter instinctively ‘gets’ the huge potential of the DeltaV-Seal and, with his proven track record of connecting with audiences, allied to his digital marketing skills, I’m genuinely excited to see how he can help accelerate our growth moving forwards.”
DeltaV-Seal is the world’s first type-approved and patented gasket. It is currently used in a variety of industrial applications for customers operating chemical plants, oil & gas facilities, refineries and other sites where piping, and business integrity are paramount.
