As inflammable gases are always present around a platform, preventing sparks has the highest priority. All regulations are geared towards this.
This means that it is imperative that fire detection and extinguishing systems work reliably and as automatically as possible. All extinguishing equipment needs to be simple to operate so that the personnel present can use, maintain and repair this without problem. At the same time, the equipment has to withstand high levels of corrosion.
The construction of an offshore platform poses specific problems for fire
protection systems, not only because many processes take place in a confined small surface area, but also because these processes are not spread horizontally, but vertically. Each platform level requires its own safety services. For example, the rooms in which personnel sleep and the helicopter platform have to be protected in different ways. Finally, there are space and weight limitations. And these are substantial. Within all these conditions and limitations, we can offer you the best solution. We understand the world of offshore platforms.
Effective fire protection requires the right balance between your equipment and systems, your onsite capability, and the potential risks a fire can cause. At Knowsley SK, we employ a structured approach to help you find the very best solution to your fire protection needs.
