Survitec suits protecting staff at Rough in the North Sea
Survitec is working with Centrica Storage Ltd. to provide inspection and maintenance services for safety equipment at the Rough gas field in the UK southern North Sea.
Under the three-year contract, Survitec is supplying lifeboats, liferafts, fire-fighting equipment, abandonment suits and lifejackets.
CSL is also the first company to adopt Survitec’s new GEN2 tri-approved, aviation, marine and constant wear suit, designed specifically to provide protection for offshore personnel.
This is said to surpass the requirements of the latest European aviation and mariner standards, and features inherently flame-retardant material, reinforced protection on the knee, seat and elbow areas, and strong in-water performance and survivability, Survitec claims.
