HVAC&R | Offshore production platforms
Offshore production platforms are designed to extract oil and gas from beneath the seabed and may be equipped with drilling equipment, processing facilities, storage facilities and living quarter modules. As the investment to deploy a production platform is enormous, the platform has to last for decades – even in the most corrosive environments on the planet. Our focus is on providing equipment for lifetime use, reduced maintenance and high reliability.
A risky job
Drawing extremely flammable fluids out of the earth, burning some of it off in a giant jet of flame and separating highly poisonous hydrogen sulfide gas form the extracted petroleum is an extremely risky job. It should go without saying that in the offshore industry, safety is the number one priority. Our HVAC&R systems for offshore production platforms can be equipped with explosion-proof equipment, H2S filtration technology and high-quality fire and smoke dampers. We possess the knowledge and expertise to meet all offshore rules and regulations, such as ATEX, HSE, NMD, PSA, NORSOK and DNVGL.
Providing comfort offshore
As employees live for weeks at a time on the platforms and work long hours, oil and gas companies generally put a great deal of effort into providing comfortable living conditions for offshore workers. Besides, indoor air quality impacts the health of the crew. Maintaining a comfortable temperature, humidity level and the right air change rate is therefore of uttermost importance.
