Roxtec supplies Dana’s North Sea FPSOInnovative cable-sealing solutions designed by Bury-based Roxtec (www.roxtec.com) have been used in the construction of Dana Petroleum’s new Western Isles FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) vessel, which started production in November.

Roxtec enclosure seals are being used to allow cables to pass between separate areas, while protecting people and equipment.

The firm’s cable sealing solutions can also be found in the vessel’s hull area, living quarters and power utility modules. Bulkhead seals and deck seals are being used topside to allow cables to pass between the FPSO’s sections safely and securely.

Roxtec UK’s managing director, Clive Sharp, said: “Roxtec seals are protecting life and assets against a huge range of potential dangers, including fire, jet-fire, gas pressure, water, explosions and electromagnetic interference.

"As well as offering a comprehensive protection package, they also allow businesses to save time, space and weight.

"Due to the simplicity of our flexible transit systems, businesses can cut the time spent on design and engineering.”

Due to its global reach, the company was able to provide assistance in the UK during the project’s design phase, as well as in China while the FPSO vessel was under construction.

Further support was made available in the UK when the platform entered its hook-up and commissioning stage, following its arrival off the UK coast in the summer.
