Oil & Gas
When you’re 400 km from the nearest coast, safety comes first
Visiting an oilrig for the first time can be a daunting experience. After landing by helicopter, you see nothing but endless ocean in all directions. You’re deafened by the sound of heavy machinery pounding through your daily routines. Strong winds threaten to pull you over the edge, and the smell of diesel is everywhere.
Helmets, earplugs, eye protection and steel-toed boots are all standard attire. Drilling operations, by their very nature, expose crews to the risk of serious injury. With so many mechanical and hydraulic processes in operation, falling objects and malfunctions are hazards for even the most experienced staff members.
When working in such demanding conditions, safety is absolutely paramount. Cranes are swinging heavy objects across the deck; drills, pumps and shakers are in constant operation; and everything needs to be 100% reliable. At the same time, operations must be continuous. The pace needs to be high and every minute of downtime is costly.
Fortunately Nord-Lock’s bolt securing systems suit all needs and applications, and are not only safe and reliable, but also cost effective. This fact is confirmed by the thousands of Nord-Lock Group customers who depend on our products.
