Fire, Thermal and Acoustic Insulation for Offshore Projects
ROCKWOOL A/S manufactures a wide range of products for all kinds of insulation purposes, including insulation for the offshore sector. On account of the unique properties of the ROCKWOOL insulation and specially developed products, ROCKWOOL insulation can be used everywhere. This applies, for example, to:
- H and A constructions
- Deck and bulkhead constructions
- Engine rooms
- Pipe and air ducts
- Doors and panels
- Floating floors
- Comfort insulation
- Subsea pipe lines
STONE WOOL FIRE PROTECTION
The ROCKWOOL products are based on stone wool, which cannot burn and which will withstand temperatures up to 1,000°C without melting.
Thus ROCKWOOL stone wool provides the best guarantee for an effective fire protection on-board offshore platforms.
FIRE HAZARD PROTECTION
Fires on floating offshore facilities can be caused by hydrocarbon fire conditions. Hydrocarbon fire conditions are typified by burning oils and fuels. Hydrocarbons burn far more fiercely than cellulosic materials (which are used on-board ships) and consequently require fire protection systems of substantially superior performance.
BULKHEAD AND DECK FIRE PROTECTION
ROCKWOOL offshore fire protection systems surpass the most stringent standards of structural stability and integrity, limiting the spread of fire and protecting personnel and equipment.
ROCKWOOL Firebat 150 is approved to provide H60 and H120 fire protection to bulkheads and decks. Cellulosic fire protection to A30 and A60 standard can be provided to bulkheads and decks by for instance ROCKWOOL Marine Firebatts 100 or Marine Firebatts 130.
HIGH TEMPERATURE INSULATION FOR SUBSEA PIPE LINES
To fulfil the increasing demands for high-temperature resistant insulation for subsea pipelines, ROCKWOOL has introduced a new product range, Aquaduct Insulation Systems. Aquaduct Insulation Systems incorporate a number of different forms of Rockwool insulation.
All ROCKWOOL products and constructions have been tested according to the latest IMO regulations, just as ROCKWOOL A/S is certified according to the latest MED directive. As Notified Body ROCKWOOL A/S has chosen Det Norske Veritas, which consequently guarantees our quality.
Besides Det Norske Veritas all ROCKWOOL products are approved by all major classification societies, i.e. Lloyd’s register and American Bureau of Shipping.
ROCKWOOL INSULATION WORLDWIDE
ROCKWOOL A/S is part of the ROCKWOOL group, which is the world’s largest manufacturer of stone wool with over 20 factories and representation in numerous countries all over the world. This means that ROCKWOOL can offer a solution worldwide.
