Hullguard technology will transform offshore industry
EM&I have teamed up with Cumbria-based Forth Engineering to design a pioneering system of protecting floating offshore installations from corrosion without using divers has been used for the first time in the UK North Sea.
The two firms claim their innovation, HullGuard, will mean companies operating offshore will be able to save valuable production time and money, as well as increasing worker safety. It also means fewer workers having to be transported in helicopters and using less dive support vessels, with a resulting reduction in carbon emissions.
EM&I chairman Danny Constantinis said: 'I am confident that this solution will be welcomed in a market which seeks safer, lower cost and lower carbon footprint solutions.'
