The oil and gases present offshore, can produce a highly combustible and unstable atmosphere, making it essential that fire detection and extinguishing systems work reliably and as automatically as possible.
Another important feature of offshore equipment is the capability to cope with the demands of the constant salt-water environment meaning the use of the highest grade materials. Space and weight is always a design issue that must be resolved when designing a suitable system for an offshore platform.
A common layout of a platform means areas/zones are stacked on top of one another in a vertical arrangement. This usually requires multiple zone systems ensuring each area is suitably protected from the risk of fire.
The company has many years of experience of providing fire protection systems for offshore platforms all over the globe including the North Sea, Azerbaijan and Canada.
