Offshore Oil Rig Platforms Inspections

Inspections are a necessary part in the on-going upkeep of any building or structure. They ensure that the building is safe and can advise of any potential problems that should be attended to.

For those structures which are not situated on conventional, stable ground such as oil rig platforms, access can become a major challenge. Rope access has become an increasingly popular way to overcome this difficulty. It focuses around suspending workers from ropes giving them an unrestrictive and secure way to access the outside and underneath of oil rig platforms to conduct any required inspection work.

Why Choose Rope Access for Offshore Inspections?

Rope access is a recognised way of safely working at height. This is due to the high standard of training workers are required to have, the quality of the equipment which can be used and the reduced number of people required to complete tasks (meaning there are less people exposed to risk).

This smaller team, and the speed at which they can work means that work can be completed quicker, making it a cheaper option to other access methods which require more time, more workers and time to setup equipment.

Inspection & Rope Access Specialists offer industrial rope access services for both on and offshore projects. We have previously worked on some of the largest offshore installations in the UK and Europe.
