Need for offshore infrastructure protection
The protection of offshore structures involves the regular inspection and monitoring of offshore infrastructure to proactively act against potential threats including fires and explosions. Offshore protection solutions also reduce the need for manual surveillance and help in undertaking preventive inspection and maintenance activities.
The solutions also help to:
- Extend the lifetime of infrastructure
- Reduce downtime
- Schedule maintenance activities
- Conduct remote inspection operations, and
- Protect infrastructure from corrosion and damage
Offshore safety equipment
Offshore platforms and infrastructure need to be equipped with the latest offshore safety equipment as close spaces and flammable materials make them vulnerable to fire hazards that can cause serious damage.
Some of the offshore fire safety equipment include:
- Gas detection systems
- High-sensitivity smoke detection systems
- Explosion-proof flame detectors and monitoring systems
- Removable fire protection boxes and jackets for offshore infrastructure
- Fire and blast-resistant walls
- Helideck firefighting systems
- Water mist and gaseous fire protection systems, and
- Fire protection valves
Training crew and personnel in fighting fires and taking prevention measures are important within the oil and gas industry, apart from installing the right offshore safety equipment. The training should cover the firefighting measures to be taken, handling hazardous materials, emergency response, and occupational health and safety measures.
