HOUSTON -- Fanpetco has awarded Tideland Signal a contract to supply warning lights and fog signals for a new offshore platform in the North July field in the Gulf of Suez.

The under-construction platform will feature two Tideland ML-300 lanterns and two red subsidiary ML-155 lanterns. The package also includes an AB-860-UL fog signal. All equipment is certified for use in a Class 1 Division 2 hazardous area.

The Tideland AB-860 UL fog signal incorporates eight drivers/emitters producing 133.2 dB at 1 m (3.3 ft) equivalent and with a usual range of 2NM. It broadcasts a 360º sound beam in the horizontal plane, with a pre-selected code. The drivers/emitters are housed in watertight GRP enclosures and are mounted in a galvanized steel structure designed to withstand severe storms and harsh marine environments.
