Suretank announces delivery of complex offshore engineered cabin

24th September 2015

Suretank, the world's leading provider of engineered solutions to the offshore oil and gas industry, has successfully delivered its most advanced engineered cabin for the offshore market.

Designed for use as a control cabin, the highly complex A60 engineered cabin will be installed on an oil rig in a hazardous location.  Up to six operators at a time can be seated in front of the control equipment while viewing the activity on the rig in front of them through special safety rated windows.

Donal Duggan, Group Research and Development Manager at Suretank, commenting on the unit said: "The unit is an intricate piece of engineering due to the multiple alarms and interlocks installed. A control panel monitors every parameter within the unit and will activate a shutdown of the electrical system in the event of any alarm condition. The operators' safety has been absolutely paramount in the design. If the safety level is threatened the unit will react accordingly.

"The design of this unit has been innovatively configured to suit the customer’s specific requirements, whilst complying with the relevant codes, including DNV 2.7-1 and DNV 2.7-2. Our research and development engineers worked very closely with the customer throughout to ensure that the final product exactly met their requirements.

"The customer came to site to complete the installation and commissioning and worked hand-in hand with the Suretank team to ensure the unit was ready for use as soon as it reached its end destination."
