In Gothenburg, Sweden, Apply Emtunga is using Roxtec seals when building the offshore accommodation modules to the oil rig projects Martin Linge and ETAP.
As the living quarters are to be the safest place on a rig Apply Emtunga puts a lot of effort into creating maximum safety. One way to ensure safety is to use Roxtec cable and pipe transits.
The living quarters of Martin Linge are delivered as a complete integrated accommodation module. It has three A60 fire rated divisions and an H60 fire rated bulkhead as partition towards the production and processing areas.
Certificates showing reliability
"We use Roxtec Sleev-it™ fire penetration seals for all plastic pipes with drinking water and hot water. The reason for choosing Roxtec is that it was the only supplier that could present the required fire protection certificates. Everything in this project must have a minimum lifetime of 30 years," says piping engineer Mattias Öhrn at Apply Emtunga.
Simplicity and efficiency
The living quarters for the ETAP project are delivered as smaller units to the rig off the coast of Scotland for final installation into an integrated unit on the platform. In this project, the fire rated plastic pipe seals used are the Roxtec RS PPS/S. Ulf Efraimsson of pipe installation contractor Assemblin, is satisfied with the Roxtec contribution:
"It is easy to work with Roxtec sealing solutions and they work perfectly."
These sealing solutions were used in the project:
