Offshore navigation system

Effective, reliable navigation systems are essential for safety to ensure offshore structures are visible to vessels in all weather conditions.

With more than 40 years’ experience in the design and manufacturer of offshore and aviation installation requirements we supply complete solutions for our customers. We work with regulatory bodies around the world and provide systems to comply with national regulations, as well as those of the International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA), the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and local Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA).

Our offshore navigation systems are not just about lights and foghorns – we provide a complete solutions, and work with our customers to develop systems adapt to their requirements. We understand the objectives of the project stakeholders and balance these with the need to meet regulatory requirements and ensure safe operation.

CAP437 compliant helideck light system

The CAA (UK) recommendations (CAP437 – Standards for Offshore Helicopter Landing Areas) are required to be followed for the safe marking of offshore helidecks in the UK and other countries following theserecommendations.

Orga has been working closely with the CAA (UK) and offshore helideck operators over many years to ensure that our helideck lighting product range meets the demanding requirements of the regulators, clients and environmental conditions. Effective, reliable helideck lighting systems are essential for safety to ensure that offshore structures are visible to pilots in all weather conditions.

We are able to meet all the helideck lighting needs of our clients providing reliable, state-of-the-art, low maintenance and cost-effective products.

Offshore remote power supply system

In order to provide risk free power to a remote location, the design of renewable power supply systems can take several forms; photovoltaic, wind and many more. Orga will review the requirements of clients and assist in the design and engineering of a reliable and cost effective system. The choice of technology selection for each project will depend on factors such as geographic location, power requirements, available size and space.

The PV (photovoltaic) system is a reliable system that guarantees the power supply in periods when there is no main AC power available.

The PV system consists of: PV module, battery unit, battery charger/ rectifier unit and a distribution system. Whenever possible we design modular systems to be cost effective, easy to handle and multiple module scan operated in parallel to meet project requirements. Certification: KEMA in accordance with the ATEX 94/9/CE directive for Zone 1.

Upcoming exhibitions

Orga will be exhibiting at a number of events over the coming months, including:

  • OTC Houston: 1 to 4 May
