Durastic, the UK marine flooring manufacturer, has won a supply and installation contract on a new platform in the North Sea.
The platform is being built by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in South Korea. Durastic will supply and lay its seamless, fire-retardant underlay and flooring products in the cellar deck of the new platform, under construction for BP’s Clair Ridge oilfield, near the Shetland islands.
Installation staff from Durastic will travel to HHI’s offshore yard near Ulsan, in South Korea. Durastic Manager, David Sinclair, who has overseen the project, said: “This latest work comes after a previous order with HHI to supply products for the Clair Ridge platform’s main module. This new deal will, again, showcase the quality and value-for-money of Durastic products, and the very best of our workmanship.
“The benefits of Durastic underlays and coverings are that they are seamless, light weight, lay in one coating and clean. Meticulously manufactured and tested, the durability of flooring ensures expensive, disruptive and time-consuming maintenance is kept to a minimum, providing terrific value for money.
“Furthermore, the quality of Durastic products means they meet A60 fire-retardant safety and certification standards set by maritime organisations across the world including Lloyds of London, IMO and American Coastguard.”? ?
The North Sea platform’s cellar deck will be laid with 528 m2 of Durastic lightweight underlay. This exceptionally light underlay is used as a ‘screed’ to prepare steel decking surfaces for a final top flooring surface. Then, 255 m2 of Durastic Decorflake epoxy-resin covering will be laid, forming one of the main flooring surfaces for the cellar deck.
