Westech supplies a wide range of solutions to the offshore and construction sectors.
The oil and gas industry comprises a number of production phases and different equipment such as flexible scaffolding systems and high-quality shipping nets.
Adverse operating conditions and extreme safety requirements are often a common feature for the oil and gas industry, so ensuring security while optimising efﬁciency, cost savings and long-term proﬁtability can be difﬁcult.
A weight calculation for lift operations must consider the dynamic capacity of the scaffolding and include the safety margin. Challenges arise when usage imposes overload on the scaffolding components. For heavier lifts, more complex scaffolding must be applied. This requires more engineering, planning and use of calculation resources.
ENERGY Rig™ for scaffolding applications
The ENERGY Rig™ is a certified lifting frame that aims to reduce risk during lifting operations. Especially in the oil and gas industry, these operations can be dangerous and lifting technologies should comply with strict safety regulations. The ENERGY Rig™ is ideal for both small and larger lifting requirements as an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution.
The modular ENERGY Rig™ is compatible with most scaffolding systems and other structures and is easily assembled by authorised scaffolding personnel. This makes the lifting process more efficient, reducing costs and the risk for incorrect lifts. Through clear and instructive manuals, users can easily lift without cranes at short notice through the solution’s easy-to-install technology, which guarantees efficiency for a variety of applications.
ENERGY Rig™ advantages for offshore projects
The ENERGY Rig™ takes approximately ten minutes to assemble on an existing scaffold and has a low handling weight, which is both time-saving and cost-effective for offshore projects. The technology is also pre-certified, so it can be quickly and easily assembled and dismantled. The ENERGY Rig™ can now lift up to 4t, which offers greater flexibility and more options for customers.
Advantages of the ENERGY Rig™ include:
- Certified lifting tool up to 4t
- Reduces risk during lifting operations and total costs
- Can be mounted in pairs for increased flexibility
- Option of a larger distance between the objects available
- Variety of potential setups
Scaffolding beam clamps for installations
The ENERGY Grip™ is designed for handling RHS profiles in new installations or platforms and is a suitable replacement for fastening clips and pipes.
An easy-to-assemble, cost-effective solution, it has a payload capacity of 2,000kg and a large fastening point capacity.
The ENERGY Grip™ is also integrated with a feature that prevents downtime and risk related to dropped objects from a height.
Shipping container nets
Westech’s container nets are speciﬁcally designed for the protection of costly tools and falling objects in the offshore industry. They are designed to withstand adverse conditions and climates. We use a high-quality mesh instead of tarpaulin to prevent the collection of snow and rainwater, which can freeze and turn into ice in cold climates, becoming a serious hazard for workers on deck.
Our container nets are developed together with leading industry suppliers to meet the challenging demands of the North Sea and the Arctic. Our SKB, SKLN and SKC are designed to hold loads of to 5t in the event of a sling break, reducing the risk of falling objects.
All our nets are carefully crafted by hand and inspected before shipping. To ensure a high standard product, we only use high-quality materials in the manufacturing process.
